The Book Thief

Directed by Brian Percival

I haven’t read the book “The Book Thief” is an adaptation of, but I feel like I probably don’t need to now. The film played out like a novel would, each scene feeling ripped straight out of the pages. I was quite disappointed the film was in English and not German, and a lot of the dialogue was very cheesy and often unrealistic considering the circumstances. It’s a film with great performances, but if you’re a fan of a book, then I’d suggest to just read it again. Maybe in a different language.
