A Movie Based On A Wonderful Novel
3 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

Having read the novel, I can say that the adaptation was incredibly amazing and really well-acted.

My fave character in the story is Damoon, He's such a truly awesome character. I love him when he wants to save Sam but avoids doing so for "some secret" reasons. He is a brave and wise man. The HARD decisions he makes will shock you terribly. Indeed Damoon's presence makes Cheshmane John Malkovich an enriched story which you can't really put down, makes you enthralled from beginning to end and a Phenomenal movie with enormously tragic moments.

The way his character talks is also SO witty and stirring.

I suggest you read the novels first, They are indeed first-rate, moving and fabulous. The movie is not as powerful as the novels but it combines a brilliant story with unbelievable acting, incredible script and outstanding direction. I can't get it out of my mind!

A definite 10 out of 10
