First I must admit that I enjoyed this film...a lot. I found it has great direction, beautiful cimematography and great acting. This is not a story about the Frankenstein monster, yes, there is a monster but it is more about the view as seen from Igor's perspective. Radcliff is an Igor that is intelligent and moral, not the comical miss-shapen Igor from Van Helsing (2004) - IMDb. If you like the tale of Frankenstein this is not what you are accustomed to. It's almost a Drama. This is something different, something totally watchable different. I recommend adding this to your watch que. Give it a go and let me know what YOU think...
