I viewed the video based on this novel.

Since I have not read the book, I cannot say whether or not the movie is a good representation of the book, and I do tend to like the book better. However, I thought this film was very well done. The movie does a lot of showing and not telling, and successfully tells a mature story from the point of view of an 8-year-old boy while still including enough information that the story can be enjoyed at an adult level. The ending was amazing.
