Big Disappointment!!!, 12 Aug 2009
I read the book first which I thoroughly enjoyed so decided to get the DVD - BIG DISSAPPOINTMENT!!! - the film doesn't start till about a third way through the book, so you miss a lot of the plot and you don't get to know the characters as well. The actress who plays Ria was very wet, where as in the book she seems a lot more capable and in control of her life. Andie MacDowell seems to play the same character in all her films, gushy and needy. Sorry big thumps down from me.
