Fair warning!
9 November 2012 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

It is one of the most foul appropriations of a book title. The plot bears only a tenuous resemblance to the book and is heinously created —writing, casting, directing, production, acting– everything will give you a total disappointment, even if you didn't read the book.

If you did, and specially if you also read The Pillars of the Earth and then watched the excellent miniseries spawned from it, you will be left with only one thought; how could a highly sold author like Ken Follett accept such treatment of his work? I would have understood from an on-the-rise unknown, but a famous author? No way. The man must be senile.

Don't waste 320 minutes on this crap. You have been warned!
