It is usually pretty disappointing to watch a film based on a great book, but this time I am having some faith. Blindness is a movie adapted from the masterwork “Ensaio sobre a cegueira (Essay on Blindness),” by Nobel-Laureate Portuguese José Saramago. It is also directed by Academy Award-nominee Fernando Meirelles, director of one of the greatest films ever made, “City of God.”
To make the story a little bit better, prodigious, sweetheart, breathtaking and compatriot Gael García Bernal is also starring.
Will be in theatres until September 19th this year.
