The Kite Runner
The Movie Version
Directed by Marc Foster
“For you, a thousand times over.”
I am SO glad they left that in the movie. It was my favorite line in the book and the movie as well.
The movie tells the same magnificent story of Amir and Hassan. Of course, the book was waaaaaaay better, but the movie stands alone. it was a very good movie as well and someone who hasn’t read the book, would enjoy it as well.
They left some parts out that I thought made the story of Amir and Hassan much deeper. I think leaving out the infertility trouble that Soraya and Amir experience takes something away from the story. They also left out a bit at the end, which I’m not going to spoil for you, that I think was integral in the relationship of Amir and Sohrab. And if you don’t know who Sohrab is….I’m not going to tell you!
To make my long post short….the movie was good, but as usual, the book was better.
