I had read the Kurt Vonnegut book a number of years ago and was keen to find out how it would be translated into film. I purchased the DVD from the US and was not disappointed. The main character Pilgrim is played in a sympathetic way and the disjoints in the plot caused by what he perceives as time travel translate well to film. Kurt Vonnegut’s message comes across very well in the film. I look forward to getting to see the film version of Breakfast of Champions following on from my experience of this film. If you want to know more about Slaughterhouse-Five, Wikipedia have a really good summary.
