I was lucky enough recently to get my hands on the original screenplay of this film - written in English by a really imaginative English screenwriter, Lara Moon. I am thankful that I did. The script was a really a tight, pacey, dark drama with deeply drawn and complex characters. What happened in production just goes to show that you can really butcher a great script - all the fabulous subtext and subtly drawn characters and story were turned into a rather so-so sex romp.
As a budding screenwriter myself, I can honestly say this is the perfect lesson for all screenwriters - we have no control over our work once we hand it over to a director and producer.
Why is it also that when a film is deemed a brilliant success it is always the director who gets the high praise BUT when a film is deemed a pile of crap it is always the screenwriters fault? Well in this instance I can say for a fact that if anyone read the script they would certainly visualize a rather different film than the one that finally got produced. So here's 10 stars to Lara Moon for a fabulous script.
