I read the book (german translation) and was enthusiastic about it. So far, so good.

First, the movie was much too short! You can not handle this wonderful book in a normal movie. Many philosophers were not shown or not honored enough (e.g. Marx, Hegel etc.). The book does!

Second, it was concentrated on the subplot. The main plot should be the philosophy but a viewer who has not read the book could think the story around the other people than sophie and alberto were the most important thing.

BUT: Alberto and Sophie were played fantastic actors!

I think the suitable format is a TV mini series, each part assigned to a chapter. And with the same actors and sound track.
