The scenes in this book are vivid and I think that is a good element, I therefore say yes.

The characters are well developed and portrayed thus making it suitable for a film.

I'd say yes too. Anything that revolves around Da Vinci... I'm in!

No,no,no. At best this would end up a Lifetime mini-series.

I can see the settings and historical tie-ins being great for a movie. However, I think it would be difficult to portray so many different past-life regressions - basically the two main characters each having two past-life regressions.

This would translate very well into film. The action and adventure is great, there is not too much detail that has to be conveyed, and much of that can be done visually with a great scen setting shot. The romance element and the danger elements would certainly aid in making this a fun movie.

I honestly think it would make a good movie. People love the arts and a mystery set in a gallery...I can almost picture it already. I think this would be perfect for the big screen!

I strongly believe the book will be a success if adopted to the movies and film environment, because that will greatly liven the rich plot, and characters of the book.

I think it would make an interesting movie, the flashback to the Renaissance period would make for good cinema. My only concern is where to place the genre. I remember watching an Indian romantic movie called Raabta, it was set in a modern-day city with very modern characters. When past life regression was introduced half-way into the movie and the scene changed from the modern age to the golden age, I completely lost interest, didn't finish the movie.

Halfway through the movie would be far too late to introduce that, if you ask me. No wonder you lost interest!

I think it would do well if marketed as a romance movie with some action in it.

Such a marvelous mystery storyline will definitely fit to be produced as a movie. It will be really a fascinating film.

It would be interesting as a movie. The romance and different time periods would definitely make for a good plot, and something viewers would like to see
