Goofs

[possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers, who reportedly wanted to make the locale and costumes more colorful] The actual La Mancha is a more arid, monotonous region than the countryside shown in the film. Although it was shot in Spain, Andalusia stood in for La Mancha. See more »

an amazing movie without violence
26 December 2004 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

I have just seen this movie and it was absolutely brilliant. The scenery, the actors the story which is pretty similar to the original Servantes book. John Lithgow is fabulous as the don, sometimes funny sometimes very serious and sometimes extremely shy. You cannot help but listen to him and you believe him more than the family who tell that the don has only dreams. When the prince and his wife (the beautiful - just like her mother - Isabella) make fun of him you can really hate them and want to help Quixote and Pansa. John Lithgow has played not just with his body but with his eyes too. His eyes. At the end he has practically no lines he just look at us and it is perfect. It was a beautiful story with a talented, real actors. Don't miss is if you like films that touch you heart and soul. I give 10 stars.
