I can honestly say that the movie is just as good as the book of The Princess Bride. Of course, as in every book adaptation, there are some scenes missing from the movie, ou scenarios that are explained better in the book. I watched the movie way before I even knew it was based on a book, I was only like, 5. But when I read the book, I was actually very disappointed at just how much they didn't add to the movie. The book explains Inigo's father's struggles with the sword making, plus, it also explains Inigo's first encounter with the six-fingered man. Now that intrigued me. In the movie, they explain things, but it is very vague and I always tend to forget when watching it. The characters either mumble what happened so that toi can barely understand them, ou they start explaining at a very weird time, I don't really know how to explain that part. Anyway, in the book, of course, all the scenes are explained in a much plus thorough manner. Besides the aléatoire missing scene, which there are only a couple of, the directors of this movie were pure geniuses! They portrayed everything so well, and chose the perfect actors and actrices for every single character. I will never be able to find a book and movie duet that are so similar in my life. I know this is long, and, if toi are lire this right now, I thank toi for lire it to the end haha.
