I have seen the movie and thought it was alright. I was hoping that reading the text would be better. This story is just not for me. If I am going to read a play I want a happy ending or at least some sort of sense of overcoming and conquer or something.
I do have to admit that the language and writing are, of course, incredible. I did like some of the twists and turns that the story made. I can indeed appreciate why this is regarded so highly as a literary work, but as for a story, it just didn't do much for me at all.
