novel vs movie
Two years ago, my daughter almost forced me to read the Uros Petrovic's kids novel Fifth Butterfly. She was a fun of his prose and I couldn't avoid reading it. Although it was a fun read, when I recently saw the film adds I started thinking of an excuse to skip it, but end up watching it anyway. Since it wasn't my movie of choice for a weekend out, I didn't expect much but it turned out to be quite good. It was long since my last Serbian film and this one really seems like something new and exiting, even for someone my age. I don't recall watching anything I can compare with this before. Not to mention kids, it looked like most of them are familiar with the book. One more thing struck me. I am avoiding 3D films lately, they are just too offensive visually for me. This time, we sat mid 7th row and everything looked right, like we were in a hot spot. I don't know is this a good or bad 3D, but I definitely didn't get a headache. I recommend this film for age 10+, and parents will have their share of fun also, more so if they are admirers of some of the best Serbian actors casted here.
