I'm one of those who approve of books being made into films, as long as they reasonably stick to the novel, because they bring a new perspective and life to the story. However, I had read nothing but horrible things about this film before I went to see it. Yes, the characters are strange people, but that is what makes them memorable; we see parts of ourselves in them and parts of their culture that molded them into who they were.

Bardem's Florentino is being called a "creepy" "stalker", but his actions in the novel are no different then those on the screen and reflect the passion and desperation of the world he lives in. Fermina is being called "cold" and "unlikable", but in the novel that's what she is; a haughty, proud woman who keeps her heart buried. I know the number of bad reviews out there will undoubtedly outnumber the good ones. I don't care. I urge you to go see this film.

The novel it follows is a classic and is one of the greatest love stories of all time. Its characters are not perfect, they are human. The scenery, costumes, and overall atmosphere of the film are authentic and moving. But at the heart of the images, there is a love story that is timeless, character traits that hit close to home, and a happy ending that it seems few of us find.

This is why we watch movies. It's not the entertainment, the celebrities, or the technological feats. It is the stories that make us think, that cause us to question the world we live in. We all didn't watch "To Kill a Mockingbird" for the comedy or memorable performances though they were.

We watched it for the time it portrayed, the people it involved, and the message that made us ponder what our world was, is, and is going to be. The faults, successes, failures, and dreams we all have. It is worth anyone's time to see it at least once. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. Full Cast and Crew.
