| A little bit too slow
The story itself out of the brilliant imagination of Nobel price winner José Saramago is for sure very interesting, specially if your are somehow related to the culture of Portugal and Spain:

The entire Iberian peninsula cracks off the European continent and starts to float on the ocean. A couple of people that are somehow in a strange way related to the event join together to... well - that is the point. It does not get clear what they are actually trying to find. They are travelling through Portugal and Spain, there are some interesting events and even some relationships, but the true mystery is not solved or even investigated by them. At the same time the story develops a little bit too slow. The jokes that are introduced into the film seem a little bit forced (e.g. the running joke with the 2CV).

The question why all this happens remains unanswered until the end.

The film is not perfect, but still I do not regret that I watched it.

Maybe the film was designed for people that read the book, I will read it and this will hopefully help me to see also the film in a different light.
