| Great until second writer takes over
Knowing the book well, I was really impressed with this rendering until the latter part that was not completed by the original author Haslek who had died, but was handed over to a ghost writer to complete.

But until the newer Russian section, this is better than any of the other earlier film versions I have seen. Should have had a ten if the film ended where the original book ended.

I read that Joseph Heller would not have written "Catch 22" (another of my favorites) if he had not read the book

Really exceptionally well done at the beginning capturing perfectly the satire of the book and the lead actor was perfect for the role.

I wish there had been English subtitles so I could have let other people see it.
