and then he became a star  
I had not spend enough time here so most of you probably don't know how much I love The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It practically became my comfort reading pick (although I always cry at the end of it). I was so excited to hear that they were making a movie out of it, so during my stay in Indonesia, I dragged my parents to watch the film with me on the first day it was released! Although I only got the mood to talk about it now because I was so upset. It's a really pretty movie with amazing score, to be honest. However... I can say that I'm extremely disappointed with how it turned out to be, especially regarding the plot.

I tried so hard to find things I love from this movie, and I did really love the visual style and the amazing score (I bought the soundtrack regardless). I wanted to like it, to be honest, but I found it really hard when the qualities I adore from the source material was buried. Have you watched the movie? What do you think about it? I'd like to hear other opinions on this since most blogs and reviews just praised this movie without discussing the source material.
