"Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time." These opening words of Kurt Vonnegut's famous novel make an effective and short summary of a haunting, funny film. For the screen, director George Roy Hill faithfully renders Vonnegut's black anti-war comedy about Pilgrim (well played in a low key by Michael Sacks), who survives the horrendous 1945 fire bombing of Dresden then lives simultaneously in his past as a naïve American POW and in the future as a well-cared-for zoo resident on the planet

The film captures the essence of the book even while diverging from it. Vonnegut himself always claimed to be extremely pleased with it.
Embora consiga se manter fiel à trama e à estrutura narrativa do fabuloso livro de Vonnegut, falha por não ter força dramática e por captar apenas parcialmente a intensa mensagem anti-belicista da obra original.
Interesting, if not fully realized, version of the Vonnegut novel.
