Mo has the special talent to bring characters out of books. One night he brings out three characters from Inkheart, a story set in medieval times and filled with magical beings. Capricorn and Basta, two villains, and Dustfinger, a fire-eater. Now, 10 years later Meggie discovers the truth and it's up to her to escape Capricorn's evil grasp.Written by
The Italian Riviera Film Commission helped to find an abandoned and suitably spooky town to serve as Capricorn's lair. See more »
In the escape sequence, the metal bars that kept Resa behind appear and disappear in between scenes. In a few scenes, she could've easily gone through the gap between the bars. See more »
Having writer's block? Maybe I can help.
Oh yes, that's right. You want to be a writer, don't you?
You say that as if it's a bad thing.
Oh no, it's just a lonely thing. Sometimes the world you create on the page seems more friendly and alive than the world you actually live in.

Cornelia Funke is my favourite author and so I was nervous about the transfer to the screen. I knew there would be inevitable cuts and changes, which could take the heart out of the story. The actors (with the exception of Helen Mirren) didn't match what I had in my head. Could they capture the in depth personalities?
As it turned out, my casting concerns were unfounded, although there was an annoying line from Capricorn. (In the trailer, unfortunately.) The cuts are noticeable, but acceptable. Same goes for the majority of changes. I enjoyed the first two sections, but then came the ending. I won't say how it's changed, but it was WRONG. In fact it was so WRONG, that there will be difficulties sequel-wise.
The best way to enjoy Inkheart is to lose yourself in the book. I hope this film encourages viewers to do just that.
