Nearly all film versions of Twain's Huckleberry Finn have to excise a portion of the novel to avoid being overlong. This version gives only a passing nod to the Grangerford-Shepherdson feud, and omits the whole of the Evasion Sequence (roughly the last quarter of the novel). This last omission is not as terrible as one might think, since Twain's ending for his novel has divided critics, with many seeing it as unsatisfactory, or at least as on a lower level of inspiration to the preceding narrative. The removal of the novel's ending does, however, make the movie's conclusion a bit of a non-conclusion, with nothing really resolved. But as a 'riff' on the original novel (which every film adaptation is anyway) this is still a gorgeous and unique version, very much worth seeing, and Madyanov makes an enchanting and photogenic Huck (even if he is a little too young and a little too well-fed for Twain's Huck!).
