Salmon Fishing in The Yemen satire 'toned down' for film

Salmon Fishing in The Yemen, a romantic comedy starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt, is based on a best selling novel.

The film has just opened in the US, where some critics have complained the book's satire has been toned down in the transition to the big screen.

Talking Movies' Tom Brook has been to meet the film's stars - and screenwriter.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and is repeated on Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 GMT
