    Well, the novel's gimmick (telling each of the 6 chapters in just one sentences) was lost in its translation to film, although the chapters are still there. The characters are divided between rich landowners and the poor folk that simply exists to serve the rich although the younger generation doesn't seem to agree with that. I can see a certain link between the servants and the birds that are endlessly killed just to make the landowners feel great about themselves, being treated with the same carelessness.
