SUM UP :

Not read or read and not liked? -> GO see another movie!
The story is about a wife that has no information about the return of her husband that went to war. So she tries to find out what happend to him.
NOTHING BUT PAIN
The film is full of pain, and is very slow, just l ike the book I heard. I would say that, while the crew might have done a great job turning the book into a move, the movie was not enjoyable: I go to movies to feel emotions, and I did not feel any but pain in this one. I had to leave the movie after 1H30 min because I was just losing my time.
4 because the cast was nice, and as said, the crew did a fine job given the book..
