What are people saying?

  • Daniel's rating of the film Sleepwalking Land

    Se queda corta en comparación con la novela. Deja a un lado todo el tema de los espíritus y eso crea vacíos en la narración. Aparte, no ofrece nada especial en términos visuales, es como filmar escenas de diálogo y ya, nada que destacar en las actuaciones o el uso de las cámaras ni en la música. Es recomendable leer el libro, ya se antes o después, es sólo para darle un fondo a esta historia que acá está fragmentada.
