It lacks... drama (?): I'm not even sure that is the right word for it.
1 January 2018 | by thiagosblancosSee all my reviews

Truth be told, I usually write reviews when I don't like what I saw, check the ones I wrote for I'm not lying and in this opportunity, it is somehow not the case and yet... Honestly, yes, it was a bit weird to see so many British actors and actresses in a famous well told (and loved) American book but, hey! They carried it through so hats off, Angela Lansbury even got me to love Aunt March, that was a first.

Now, seeing Uma and Ethan's daughter making her debut, it was also OK, she pulled it too, now, the rest. Little Women was, and still is, a favourite of mine from my early childhood. It is a book that is so easy to come back and be welcomed by the Marsh family, you can and will fall for at least one of them... and that's, perhaps, what I found most difficult in this adaptation. In spite of my attemps and their good intentions, I couldn't love any of them but Mrs Marsh, Emily Watson did a perfect job. It is the first time, as the other reviewer points that we get to see something else but the saintly image that is usually portraited in this character.

However, I'm not going to lie, it is almost impossible to dissociate my mind from the 1994 movie for it is a classic, they took 3 books into a movie and it felt right, it all just felli nto place. Sadly, I cannot say the same in here, they had even more time to include a lot of details and yet, felt (again, it's just me, you don't have to agree) a bit rush. They chose to erase some scenes and included them later on to no avail, Beth and Mr March, what happened there!? Nothing for it was not included when it is really important in the whole story!

I won't say I loved it but I havent' disliked it either. In doubt, always, go back to the books and then to the 1994's adaptation. This felt... bland. It lacks... no drama, power, yes, that would be world. It lacks something, which is a pity, for it was a chance to tell again this beautiful story and even go straight forward for they usually stop before the Litlte Men books' start.

One day, maybe, someone would take the time to do it. Watch it, you won't dislike it but I can't promise you'll love it either.
