Storyline

Alice and Mattia, two exceptional personalities but inadequate, synthesis of two lives in pain, two special people who travel on the same track, but are two worlds imploded, unable to open up to the world. One fully understands the feelings of the other, but is never able to express them out loud, in short, they are two prime numbers. Prime numbers are divisible only by 1 and themselves.

Great Movie, faithful to the book as much as it was possible for it to be.
5 May 2011 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie having waited for it almost since i heard a movie was going to be made about the book, and usually, personally at least, whenever i watch a movie based on a book i find it rather disappointing, however this is one of the few times i must say the contrary.

The setting is perfect, the distorted reality of being so far yet so close that is beautifully narrated in the book is spot on in the movie, and both characters are played beautifully by the leads, they captured every feeling, every expression and every look that the book conveys and put it on screen, however i must say that if one is to truly enjoy this movie one should read the book before as it is not very fast paced a movie and the frequent time jumps in movie will confuse a person, but for the ones who have read the book it will make perfect sense, and as a final word the ending is, in my opinion, (even thought it differs from the book) is how the book should have ended.
