I just came across the tag 'Books That Should Be Unfilmable But Translate INCREDIBLY' and had to explore it. Sadly, it only applies to Life of Pi at present.

I hope that this tag might eventually apply to Ted Chiang's Story of Your Life, but I really can't see how they plan to adapt that to the screen.....

I heard that it applies to Night Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko. Haven't seen the film, but I heard it was good -- and I don't know how they did it because in the book, most of the action is literally invisible!

>3 reconditereader: Don't know about translate INCREDIBLY, but it was a fun film and some of the special effects were quite effective. At times it was cheesy and overly frenetic. I think I'd have liked it less if I hadn't read the book as I would've had less idea what was going on.

That's one of the few books where I've both watched the film and read the book.

I enjoyed the film Predestination, based on the Robert A. Heinlein short story All You Zombies. That was a suprise to me and the plot seems a bit unfilmable. Luckily, they found really good actors who pulled it off.

Would Cloud Atlas qualify?

>4 wifilibrarian: I agree, some parts of the movies were quite confusing without knowing what was going on. It took a second watch before I understood more. Also, while I quite like them, they're only a fragment of the book and they made some pretty significant changes. But they did work a lot better than one would expect.
