Frankenstein novel compare to moive
Frankenstein the book and the movie had a few similarities and many differences. Robert De Niro plays the monster and he does an alright job portraying the monster in the book . Kenneth Branagh plays Victor Frankenstein and his film was in the way he showed the challenges that he needed to face during Victors life. In the beginning of the book and the beginning of the movie it??™s similar because Victor creates life from dead body parts. Victor brings the monster to life on a rainy day and abandons the monster. Then the monster escapes and people become extremely scared of it. When the monster awakes in the movie, like the book, shows the monster not evil; until the monster realizes he is not accepted or loved. The human??™s reactions to the monster are also very similar. ???Everyone starts at the sight of him, runs from his frightening features, or tries to kill the monster out of fear.???(Frankenstein page 3) In the film, the monster is unable to speak and the audience is unable to see any humanity within him. Instead of the viewer feeling pity for the monster as portrayed in the book, the movie aims to scare everyone watching the film. A scene the film takes out is the year the monster spent by the house of the De Laceys in which he learns how to speak and understand language he also tries to become friends with the blind old father. Once he lives the De Laceys the monster saves the girl drowning in the book but in the movie he throws her into the river. Elizabeth shows how much love she has towards Victor, the picture that she creates is exactly like the book; and she does well at showing her fear. Frankenstein abandons his work after he becomes extremely frightened on how hideous it is; all but convinced that the monster he created would perish on its own.
Victor Frankenstein, who is the young scientist, who discovers how to bring life to dead tissue , who the story revolves around; He is the creator of the monster. Kenneth does a good job showing the problems Victor has while growing up and how his family always got in the way of all of his experiments. In the film one can see the affection Victor has towards his family and his extreme love for experimenting with dead people. The film focuses much more on Victor than it does on the monster.The movie and film have many similarities and differences. The monster who is played by Robert is pretty close to the same as the monster that appears in the readers mind after reading the book. Kenneth plays Frankenstein and is quiet similar to the book except there is too much drama within the film. In the end of most comparison of movies and Books they are very similar but the book is in much greater detail than the film, and the film is much more enjoyable..
