I think the reviews show it will be great as a movie. I think if made a movie it would be a hit.

Honestly, as wonderful as it sounds to turn it into a movie, I don't think a movie would do it justice. I feel like some of my favorite scenes, such as the end where all of the reincarnations make an appearance, wouldn't be depicted in a movie nearly as well as they were in my head. I personally just think they take too much out of books to turn them into movies. Also, watching sex scenes makes me uncomfortable 😞

When the movie was made of Dan Brown's book I didn't like it as the movie was too slow and dark. If a movie is made of "The girl who knew Da Vinci code" it would be really good as it has an interesting plot with adventure, romance, and paranormal aspects.

I saw the movie Da Vinci Code and thought it was fascinating! The Girl who knew DaVinci...gives a new twist in the Da Vinci realm.

There is no reason not to make it come to life in the big screens. Da Vinci's works have stayed in the limelights eversince they were created. You just give the public a nudge of some controversial plot in the story and they'll be craving for the what-ifs. The film makers should accentuate it with the right budget to cover all the details this book has to offer.

I think this book would make for an amazing film! Some aspects would need to be improved to ensure a good quality film but the idea of the connection and Angela going through the different time periods combined with the action and the different areas they travel to would make for a film I would surely watch!

Yes, I think it would make a great movie. It had an interesting plot and the different time frames would be great visually not just the reader's imagination.

It can be adopted into a Romantic movie but not a thriller. The romantic instances take the mainstage in the book and has been written well, so a Romantic movie.

I think yes. It contains a lot of cinematic scenes. Though the budget would be huge it would make a great movie.

Honestly speaking, I will suggest that all good books attributed to Davinci be made into movie, cos one need to know more about him.

I could see Gal Gadot playing Angela/Fioretta/Sophia.

Although the plot of the book is excellent switching between three periods, I doubt movie can do justice with the plot. This is because I have never been satisfied with the movies which were adopted from novel.

Yeah, this book could make a good movie. It can make a thrilling action packed movie and partly a soap opera fiction.

I can definitely see this becoming a movie, maybe not as popular as the Da Vinci code, but still a success. Of course, this would definitely not be a kids movie and most likely R rated if they went with certain parts of the book. As far as a good movie, I think it would make that list.

I would say yes. If the book was turned into a motion picture, it would definitely touch up on the bland bits that took away from the story and the detail that the book lacked could be shown. It would help make the story make more sense.
