*** This review may contain spoilers ***
The movie did live up to the book and did not capture the powerful emotions expressed by Tita and Pedro. The plot seemed rushed compared to the book's and not much time was spent on key scenes. During scenes pertaining to the Mexican Revolution, comical music was played which significantly took away from the seriousness of the time period. Though the scenes of magical realism were shot well, they did not seem as powerful as in the book. The director did do a particularly good job with Tita's mental breakdown. Overall I thought that it was decent and would recommend this movie to anyone who found interest in the book despite some of its flaws.
