I've always loved Mark Twain and the stories of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. As a young adult I was forced to read his books but found them enjoyable. Afterward in class they'd show some version of another of the books. So I was bit excited for a new updated version. Adapted and directed by Jo Kastner from Germany, and filmed in Bulgaria. It was clear from the start that Kastner had little cultural grasp on Mark Twain's small town, mid-West American world in the middle of the 19th Century. I would have given this film a higher score, but I did feel that the casting choice for the role of Injun Joe was not as good as what it could have been, if they would have given the role to a native American to preserve the authenticity of the character.
