a good movie
on March 6, 2008
After reading all the negative reviews on this movie, I wasn't sure I wanted to see it. I loved the novel, and now am a fan of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's works. I was pleasantly suprised that the movie kept true to the novel, and very much pleased with the actors that brought the charaters in Marquez's book to life. The scenery is spectacular, and the cinematography is breathtaking. Its worth watching and judging for yourself, as Oscar Wilde once said..."One man's poetry is another man's posion".
