La Délicatesse - S & D. Foenkinos (2011)

In book-form, it is Foenkinos's witty and poetic style that prevents his stories from being mawkishly sentimental.
This style is, self-evidently, absent from the film, and mawkish sentimentality is therefore all that remains.
If not even the author himself is capable of transferring his text on to film, doesn't that ascertain that it just isn't feasible?
Or does it simply ascertain that Foenkinos is a better writer than director?
