If you're into reading books, I'd suggest picking José Saramago's novel and reading it instead of watching this. Blindness is a must-read in my book for any book-reading person, but this movie.... it isn't, forgive the pun, a must-see. It ain't bad but it ain't Saramago.
Didn't evoke me the feel of the novel. I could barely feel the anguish, the desperation, the frustration, the ugliness and filthiness. It was a nice adaptation but nah, it could've been better.
From a novel of one of the best writer ever - José Saramago.
Good movie, even if not so great as the novel, but it can be an impossible task.
I didn't read the book so I can't say anything about the adaptation but I can say the movie was great. Worth every second!!
Fernando Meirelles is a great director, no doubt about it. Blindness is a philosophical masterpiece where the blind are those who see and those who see are blind. Unbelievable plot, outstanding actors.
not-bad adaptation but didn't reach the depth of the novel, but was able to cover up all significant events (maybe it should have the prolonged the post-asylum part of the movie).
Apart from that, I must say that the acting of many of those characters did not convince. For a lot of moments, they did not look like actual blinds.
