Well this movie will BECOME A MASTERPIECE, specially for the one who never had the time to read the book, If you haven´t read the book yet I am pretty sure this movie will become your favorite ever. I am amazed that the director of "Run Lola Run", really had the time to beautifully work on this movie, He respected the soul of the book and his way of telling the story tru the hour and a half is AMAZING!!!!!.I was really glad that He captured (not totally) the filthy ambience and rotten state of that period.
I was not dissapointed of this film, it is a great homage to the book and I encourage people to watch it!!!!!.
BUT if you can please read the book first you will notice the nuances that makes the book MY FAVORITE EVER!!
Have a great Day!!
