Fails
5 March 2016 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This movie fails in many points. It fails in rendering a proper account of the book. It is badly adapted in contemporary (2014) area. It fails by mixing American Pie-style jokes in an fantastical novel with a coming-of-age undertone. It thus fails in finding its public : - too mature for the youngones. - too childish for elders. There is no point in this film. A child who is a looser, afraid of water, will finally be able to take over his fears and grow up a bit. So what ? We have seen this thousands of time in much better ways. Some special effects (very few actually) do not redeem its overall value. Not worth its lenght. Should have been issued as TV-only.
