A nice film which does not destroy the book on which it is based
9 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

I read the book of Germano de Almeida and enjoyed both the simplicity and the chronological order by which the story is told. The style somehow fits and respects the main character of the story, which, as the title suggests, deals with Napumocenos life and legacy. When you enjoy a book it is often a risk to see the movie. Not only the director can have his own interpretation but the plot can change and bad acting can destroy the whole thing. In this case, watching the film was a big a pleasure as reading the book, because the adaptation does not destroy the plot and the acting is good, specially the actor who plays Napumoceno. In addition, the movie shows how beautiful Cape Verde is and enhances the story in this respect for audiences who, like me, never saw Cabo Verde. Conclusion: Worth to see even if you read the book or know the story.
