Excellent film, but don't expect a copy of the book
In general, this is an excellent film that reflects with great detail the time in which action develops (50's). Costumes, ambientation, and over all, a wonderful photography (the best of the film) gives you a clear idea of life in Lanzarote in that years. If you have read the book, don't expect an exact transliteration. New characters and situations are included, and the end in particular have a great change (personally, I prefer the book one). Anyway, its worth seeing it. A nice passions history with a great ambientation.
