Great book, bad film
22 December 2002 | by JakubDemianczukSee all my reviews

Pawel Huelle's book "Weiser Dawidek" is one of the most wonderful novels of Polish modern literature, but it's film adaptation is not worth your time. The movie is boring, miscasted and has no magic in it. Better read than watch if you can.
