atomised (2006) - oskar roehler

I read the novel a year or so ago (in fact it was here), so l was curious to see Atomised as a film adaptation. It's a German adaptation (with subtitles) and manages to get the book across in the right (slightly strange) way, but it is not as pessimistic as the book (although it is in no way cheerful). Two brothers have issues with their sexuality. One is also a maths genius and they are both having trouble with relationships and their upbringing. It also involves genetics, cloning, and reproducing without actually having sex (it's a long story). I'm glad l have seen the film, but l must admit, l did prefer the book.
