La tradition of adaptations has a great and very long history in the seventh Art.
Precisely for this reason, it is not surprising that a film that has been well received somewhere other than the United States, where the great machinery of Hollywood is unstoppable, be adapted.
This is neither a bad thing nor a good thing, but there are occasions when, even if a production has a larger budget, it does not reflect the same essence as the original film and leaves much to be desired.
That's why we decided to recommend you to see four films that you surely know, but in its most popular versionr, so you can buy them and you decide which one is much better.
the belier family
This year CODA: Signs of the Heart It won Best Picture at the Oscars. This film is based on another that came out in 2014 in France: The Belier family.
Eric Lartigau is the director of the film that revolves around Paula (Louane Emera), the only one who can hear in a deaf family and who discovers her talent for singing.
The only thing we can say about this gem is that it is much more real and the story leaves so much marshmallow aside, as in the American one.
The talent of Mr. Ripley is a movie that everyone loved in the 90s with Matt Damon, but in the original (In Full Sun) the protagonist is none other than Alain Delon.
Starting from the central plot of the well-known novel by Patricia Highsmith, the filmmaker René Clément brought this unforgettable story to the big screen in 1960, taking us into an indelible poetic atmosphere.
In 1978, the filmmaker Édouard Molinaro saw the light of La Cage aux folles (small vices), a comic film of Franco-Italian entanglement that simply captivated half the world.
Such was its success at that time (it lasted almost 6 years on the billboard) that almost 20 years later this wonderful story came to Hollywood as The Cage of the Madwomen and became another great success.
In this British psychological drama, Andrew Wyke (Laurence Olivier) is a renowned writer of intrigue novels. His great passion for his riddles made him turn his mansion into a kind of museum.
One afternoon he invites Milo Tindle (Michael Caine), his wife's lover and owner of a chain of beauty salons, to his house to propose an ingenious plan that could benefit both of them.
Decades later (2007), the film director Kenneth Branagh takes up the sensational story and this time Caine plays the role that Laurence Olivier played in the original version, which is fantastic.
