Tim Roth? The man can act.
29 November 2001 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

This is a very strange adaptation of a strange book. All in all it's not likely to appeal to people who are not fans of the book. It's a very strange taping of the play based off the book.

One thing that you should not miss is the performance that Tim Roth gives as Gregor Samsa, the man turned bug. His physical performance is especially worth watching. He becomes the bug with no costume or makeup and pulls it off very well. Watch him climb and swing and perform amazing physical feats. It's really rather impressive. Worth the watch.
