It could definitely be made into a movie, or several. The bits about when she melds her mind with the raven were difficult to understand and would be much better represented visually!
There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul!

I don't see the language as a barrier. Other than the language, the plot has got all the capabilities to be adapted into a great movie. :D

I think it would be difficult to adapt this book as a movie because of how detailed the book is.

I disagree. A single movie would not work (especially since so much was left unresolved at the end with the cliffhangers), but multiple movies or a television series would do well. The A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin was extremely detailed and look how well "Game of Thrones" did on HBO! A lot of details can be represented visually so the level of detail would be simplified on screen.

I think it would make a great movie, maybe with captions or subtitles for the different languages. Other shows and movies have successfully done this, so I don't see it being a problem.
