i'd argue that if you're getting into photography, start with a digital to get the basics down, then go to 35mm.
Digital will provide more shots at less cost. The more shooting you do, the more experience you get, the better you'll understand photography.
Once you understand basics of shooting, moving to film will give you the oppertunity to focus in on the aspects photography that are particular to film.
