Fans of the book might take serious umbrage at a few plot decisions regarding Nemo that drastically change his character, but other than that it's a somewhat faithful rendition of the classic story. Being a Disney production means that the story will by default have a lighter touch compared to certain parts of the book, but I was also struck at how modern the tone was. Clean cut Douglas and Lorre lend a very modern feel which took me out of the time period in which the film takes place.
That cast! Kirk Douglas, James Mason, Peter Lorre and Paul Lukas!
By far the best adaptation of the book.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
