James Burbidge scripsit:

	>>>
So I return to my original reference: it is like Pope's _Iliad_ -- "A
very pretty poem, Mr Pope, but you must not call it Homer."  (For the
record, I like Pope's _Iliad_, although not as well as Homer's
original.)

Apt. My reaction to this film was "It tells in many ways a different
story, but it tells it well."
