More than R L Stevenson
22 September 2017 | by JuguAbrahamSee all my reviews

"Memory is like a diamond" quote from this fascinating adaptation, suited more for reflective adults than for kids. Steeped in philosophy and literary asides. The best performance from the late Martin Landau. Amazing line up of actors and actresses--including Mrs Jean Luc Godard. Demands repeated viewings, as any work of Ruiz, to savour all its juices. R L Stevenson merely provides a skeleton, the body comes from Ruiz.
