That's how he lost his wife, a few years ago. Now, with his young daughter, he is desperately searching for another copy of that book, in an attempt to get his wife back. However, others are also searching for the book ... one good guy from book world, who wants to get back, and some nasties, who want to bring their mate from book world into the real world. As they race against time, things heat up.

Leon van Nierop quote iconSeldom before has a product with such good intentions and such a respected cast failed to deliver on such a grand scale.

eye Weekly
Chris Bilton quote iconInkheart’s fantasy-meets-reality is a little like The Brothers Grimm crossed with Jumanji and yet, surprisingly, the film relies less on the CG-spawned fantasy folk and more on quality acting to prod the plot along.
