5. Literature and Film


The theme of the Scandinavian Newsletter is film and literature. A large number of films released in Scandinavia and Holland are based on novels, plays or other existing literary works. In actual fact this is a hazardous venture, since the film viewers are in a position to compare the film with the book. What is the relationship between film and literature? Can the two be compared at all?
