The movie was ridiculous. Julianne Moore was not convincing as an opera singer. I did not warm up to any of the characters.

Enjoyed the movie, compassion and love in difficult situations. Fight for freedom.

I was not impressed by this movie. Julliane Moore was not believeable in this role. It was kind of boring.

If someone asked me what the worst book I ever read was, it would absolutely be a 'Bel Canto'.
I found it super hard to get through the book, so I thought I'd give the video a chance for a reprieve. But after looking through the comments sounds like it's just more of the same blah

I guess I won't read the book after all. The way the hostages play out their captivity by Shining Path guerrillas is ludicrous. I'm a music lover, but even I don't believe in the power ascribed to music in this story.

Nothing special, a bit entertaing, and a very different ending. We took the time to finish it and glad we did. Is it one you can miss, yea it is. But if you like movies take the risk.

Great production qualities, & acting. The question I have tho' is, do the captors lose sight of their purpose, or do they not have a strong enough purpose from the get-go? I did not really buy the story. It is possible to connect with the person(s) who hold you hostage & relate to them. It is hard for me to imagine anyone who is held hostage to not be thinking of an escape 100% of the time. I would be. The relationships created by the hostages themselves are well done, but not realistic in this environment. Without them the film would be nothing.

I loved Patchett's novel when I read it many years ago - swept away by her writing and the story
I enjoyed the movie but my heart still goes with the book, which in my memory is more powerful and had a much greater impact on me
