almost nice
20 October 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

a credible Tom Sawyer. a soft . plump Huck. too young aunt Polly. and different Joe the Indian. a lovely recreation of small town, same adventures, spirit of novel at right place. but not exactly an adaptation. because the ambition to create a self work is too great in this case. so, the nuances becomes colors, the details are more important than large problems. sure, it is a play and each adaptation is game with facts from book if the measure is not too far.after other adaptations, it is right to desire create something original. but the desire is not always right way. in this situation, fundamental chance is the love of public for Twain masterpiece. the two charming boys. the lights. the science of images creation. and the nostalgic memories. and, of course, the option of filmmaker for Bucarest.
