Just some good aspects
When I think of the book "Fabian" by Erich Kästner, I think of a good and all in all a funny book - somehow also provocation...
The film isn't make that way. Well, maybe the provocation is similar to the book The end of the book is a fantastic joke on the life of the main character and the most important point is, and for me that's missing in the film, the recipient can understand the decision he makes when he jumps from the bridge...
But there are some good aspects in the film... For example the character who play the role of Fabian has on of the brightest smiles I ever have seen in an film - and he is playing his part well. What I liked about the adaption were the authentic scenes from the book - just as in the house of the lawyer in the beginning and the following situation with Fabian and his wife. That was a good start, but the way wasn't gone consequently. And that's what the book had done.
All in all: 5 points!
