The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Truly enjoyed book and film.
I loved the book, the film wasn't bad but perhaps I had too high expectations! Still Crowe was good as Jack although Bettany should have been a bit dirtier etc to play Maturin
Films of loved books ALWAYS fall short of expectations. But Crowe was very good. The rest was just OK. I enjoyed the visualization of those days.
Films of books almost always disappoint to some extent. Still it ws beautifully filmed
