Shouted angrily at the screen when a rap song played. Within the last 60 minutes of the film, the book took place. I actually enjoyed that bit of the movie. They even pulled real lines from the book and typed them up on screen, which was sort of cool, but it was really too late to save the feeling of the movie.
I was excited to see "The Pearl" available from a mass retailer for a reasonable price.
I hoped it could be utilized in a class study. The video packaging should have more accurately read: There were multiple inconsistencies and added scenes between the novella and the movie. These inconsistencies, while annoying and not true to the novella, remained true to the spirit of the novella and did not detract wholly from the movie.
Examples, in the movie, a scorpion bites Coyotito in the leg, in the novella the scorpion bites the child in the shoulder. The pearl buyers in the movie ultimately offer Kino 2, pesos for the pearl, but in the novella Kino is offered the best price of 1, pesos.
In the movie, Kino kills three men smashing his boat, while in the novella Kino kills one man after an attempt to rob him of the pearl. There are too many other inconsistencies, as well as added scenes, that I will not attempt to describe, but again. I will describe some of the most egregious departures.
After Coyotito is refused medical treatment, Kino goes pearl diving. In the novella, Juana is praying that Kino finds a great pearl so they can afford medical treatment for Coyotito. When Kino finds the large oyster in the sea he is excited and brings it to the surface, the oyster is opened in the boat, and Kino howls when the great pearl is discovered.
In the movie, this whole tension is lost.
Kino is out pearl diving, just like any other day, and a storm drives he and Juana into shore. He casually opens the oyster to find the great pearl and gets excited. Eventually, he is murdered, pushed off a cliff, after Kino refuses to sell the pearl to the local buyers at the fixed price.
While a major character and incident in the movie, this character did not even exist in the novella. In the movie, the doctor became the chief antagonist. The doctor conspires with the pearl buyers to cheat the local divers out of their pearls.
In the novella, this chief pearl buyer is unknown.
Further, in the movie, the doctor is not actually a doctor, but a fugitive from Europe posing as a doctor in Mexico. The doctor, in the movie, is seen hiring a hunter to track Kino for the pearl.
As payment, the hunter demands from the doctor his rich medical practice once he returns to Europe. All of this is added to the movie and never happened in the novella. In the novella, the reader is left to speculate their fate. Finally, in the novella, Coyotito is killed by a rifle shot from the hunter just as Kino attacks the hunter and trackers.
Kino and Juana, defeated, return to the village with the lifeless body of Coyotito, and throw the pearl into the sea.The Book of Abraham.

If you’ve looked up The Great Gatsby movie, you’ve probably realized that The potential issue with this is that if you watch just one movie, and skip the book, you could totally miss a larger theme the movie uses a completely different frame – Nick is a bitter, institutionalized alcoholic looking back at the summer he spent with.
