After reading the book only recently, I just had to get my hands on the film. I mean of course when you read a book, you always want the film to impress you just as much, but I did not expect it to impress me as much as it did!
I found the film absolutely captivating, as hilarious as it was heart breaking, the balance was perfect, and I enjoyed it thoroughly throughout. The casting was perfect and incredibly believable; Colin played Arturo brilliantly well and brought a real command to his character, as I felt in the book, and Salma was fantastic as Camilla, probably one of the very few actresses who would be able to play a character such a Camilla so well.
I loved this film and I would certainly advise everyone who is interested to by it. It would not be a waste of your money. :-)
