At last - the film of the book!,
This review is from: Frankenstein [DVD]  (DVD)
This was an unexpected delight. The makers have translated Mary Shelley's original story faithfully to the screen in a highly watchable version that uses its actors and locations to good effect. It is played out against breathtaking scenery, so that in spite of its dark subject matter it is very easy on the eye. The film is well paced, yet manages a thoughtful nod to the themes of the book.
It is presented in two parts, coming in at just under three hours in total. There is also a brief "making of" featurette and a trailer.
