I've seen two movies based on novels: Children of Men by PD James and Notes of a Scandal by Zoe Heller. I thoroughly enjoyed both, which actually surprised me. I guess I'm used to thinking that movies based on books usually stink. Then I realised that these two movies were made by the British. I wondered: do the British have better respect for the novel and carefully translate it better to the screen?
