A treasure, absolutely, a fine film based on a classic tale
13 December 2010 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Dora (Camilla Power) is the oldest of five children of a widowed father (James Wilby). The family is in fairly dire straits. Father works but expenses are great and the clan is in danger of losing their home. Happily, there is an iron in the fire in that papa has a knack for invention and is working on a mechanical icebox. But, what if he does not complete it and who will provide the backing to make it come to fruition? The children, aware that the situation, decide that they will dig for a buried treasure. Its not found, but, they do meet a real life German princess, along with other new pals. Dora, who bears the heaviest burden, finds work outside the home as a secretary, in addition to being in charge of her younger siblings. Best of all, the kids meet a woman doctor (Gina McKee) who proves to be an invaluable friend. She is especially interested in the invention, for she knows that many hospital medicines need to be cool. Will it all work out for this hard-working, close-knit family? This is a lovely period piece, a true treasure for those who want to share quality films with their families. Although it is British, it has clear English and situations that are universal and the cast, especially McKee, is quite nice. Naturally, the Victorian setting and costumes are beautiful and the photography is also quite wonderful. The plot, at times, seems to dart from one new event to the next, causing a bit of confusion, but it works to a good end. Do seek out this movie, you cinema fans with high standards who also crave hefty entertainment and diversion, too. As stated, this one is a treasure, certainly.
