Novo filme sensação! O diretor é o Spike Jonze (de Quero ser John Malkovich, Adaptação…) e a história é baseada num livro que fez sucesso na década de 60.
Fui pesquisar e descobri que o livro já rendeu um monte de adaptações, que copiei.colei abaixo.
- A 1973 animated adaptation, directed by Gene Deitch (two versions were released: the original 1973 version, with narration by Allen Swift and a musique concrete score composed by Deitch; and an updated version in 1988, with new music and narration by Peter Schickele)
- A children’s opera of the same title by British composer Oliver Knussen. The first (incomplete) performance was in Brussels in 1980, with the first complete performance of the final version given by the Glyndebourne Touring Opera in London in 1984. This was followed by its first U.S. performance in Saint Paul, Minnesota in 1985. A concert performance was given at The Proms in the Royal Albert Hall, London in 2002.
