The best filming of this novel!
28 July 2019 | by rkkaww2See all my reviews

I read original story of Mark Twain and can say this movie is an excellent filming of it. Oh, it doesn't follow original exactly. There are plenty of deviations. But the soul of the story is kept brilliantly! I was really excited to watch it, enjoying every scene, every dialogue and every gesture of the heroes! All actors play admirable. 100% hit! I would like this movie to be at least twice longer! In original story remained several dramatic scenes, which would adorn adventure movie. But even in this edition this movie will stay forever in my "golden list" of favorite movies!
