CineFix: The Princess Bride – diferențe carte-film

December 25, 2015 Leave a comment

The Princess Bride is a book within a book that was adapted into a book within a movie that garnered most of its success on home video. Now it’s time for us to read between the lines to find the differences between the book and the film.

The Princess Bride is a romantic comedy about lost love, revenge, torture, kidnapping, desire, and much more. Farmhand Westley falls in love with the beautiful Buttercup, but before they can be together forever they must endure many trials. The book and film have many similarities, both dealing with long lost lovers being reunited only to be pulled apart again and then finding their way back into each other’s arms, but many of the characters in the film look significantly different than their book counterparts, plus Buttercup is not nearly as dimwitted in the movie. At that, it’s time pull back the proverbial shower curtain on all the differences between the book and the film.
