Oliver for beginners., 29 October 2011
Author: anches-725-976306 from United Kingdom

If you just want an impression of the Dicken's classic without going to the trouble of reading it, this is the film for you. Most of the elements of the novel are there but without any depth of characterisation-a sort of "Oliver Light", but to my mind, this did no harm. The film is very easy to watch and anyone not familiar with the original will not be conscious of anything missing. The cast all do a good job, though Siegmann could have made Bill Sikes more of a thug. My copy has music provided by a small fairground organ playing on a loop, which becomes annoying after a while and the murder of Nancy is missing, but, nonetheless, a good watchable film.
