Don't bother
24 April 2014 | by (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

If you read the book, don't bother to see the movie. You'll go in expecting the haunting ethereal beauty/ugliness of the book but what you'll get is, and I'm going to be blunt, a whole lot of nothing. On the other hand, if you haven't read the book you'll be completely lost in this movie and have no idea at all what is going on. There is no explanation whatsoever for the lead character's strange behavior. I suppose the director is leaving it up to our imaginations but come on, give us a hint. Even once the film is over there are still so many unanswered questions that it just all seemed pointless. The cinematography, although the scenery is beautiful, lingers overly long on its subjects and after awhile you are just squirming in your seat wondering when it will end. I was expecting an entirely different movie. I was expecting the story line of the book, which would've made an outstanding movie if done properly. Too bad.
