Lets face it, films like this are remade because a lot of people just won't watch films with subtitles or that don't star Americans. With that in mind I'd rather they did a faithful adaptation than a different version, but as someone who isn't averse to subtitles or films not starring Americans it just doesn't really appeal to me.
I see this a lot as if the DVD doesn't have dubbing. I watched it subtitled but it's not like you have to.
I am curious about this one but I don't know about seeing it at the theater.
