$a VIRTUA

This is a very well made movie with a marvelous cast. However, the book is much better. There are various details that are left out and events that are changed. That's to be expected in a movie, though, for time constraints. The story is still interesting. The only problem is that the horrors of World War II and the aftermath of that war is not really covered in this movie. Anyway, I highly recommend this movie for the excellent acting by a wonderful cast! They give the movie life.
