Don't worry. After reading Beowulf I decided to watch a movie. That left me utterly confused, as for a life of me I couldn't remember most of the scenes... Because book and film are only loosely related. Damn it.

to be fair to them: the book is basically impossible to film because it's not really a coherent story but just a collection of annecdotes about the culture-clash that happens when three 20-something Russians come to Berlin for the first time.
I do think the movie captured that overall-feeling quite well but also left a lot out and invented a lot of random things...still book and movie are both fun in a way.
