The book was better, but it's still worth watching...
I was worried that this A&E production would lack the charm of the book. As it turned out, the aesthetics of this film were spot on, even if the French humor was not as well adapted for the screen compared to all those wonderful passages that were peppered throughout the book.
I read the book many years before seeing the film, but remarkable, the details were still fresh in my mind, thanks to Mayle's gift of description.
I still gave this 4 stars because they did a great job of presenting Provence exactly the way it is and the way one pictures it while reading the book.
But it's the book that will always have a special place in my heart.
