<br>The only thing I'm not completely happy with is the title. In Swedish it 
is called &quot;The Living Castle&quot; which doesn't seem quite right to 
me. I checked what the book is called in translation and that is &quot;The 
Wizard's Castle&quot;. Even if it was a while ago that the book was 
translated (1988), doesn't it make more sense to use the book title for the 
film as well?

One of the girls I went with said, "Why are they calling it 'The Living 
Castle'? It's not living, it's moving! It's like calling a film 'The Living 
Car' when it's about a regular car..." Completely cracked me up.

And apparently they're re-translating the book as "The Living Castle" now - 
saw it in the SF bookstore catalogue. Flonqing stupid.
