This is less an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's 1999 novel than of its dust-jacket synopsis, which will come as disconcerting news to fans of the author's delicate jigsaw-puzzle fantasies.
As poetic as Gaiman's writing is, there's very little action; you either go brute-force story-telling or you go lengthy, somewhat tedious exposition.
