not impressed
1 February 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I had to read the book a few weeks ago, and we also watched the film...I didn't really like it, because there are so many differences. Mr. Sumoto e.g. is much nicer than in the book, Amy and Adam aren't a couple, the color game isn't explained in detail and the characters Sue and Hideo are completely missing although my class, my teacher and me think that they are very important for the story, because they show the relationships inside the family Sumoto. If you haven't read the book I think you are not really able to understand the film, and when you read the book the movie is really disappointing. there are too many important parts of the book missing there is no real fix point to see in the film, although the book has a clear fix point, the color game! It is also stupid that Adam and Amy go skating instead of going to the hula dance because I think it is also very important because this is a point where Amy shows her oriental roots.
