The silence of the crows
6 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

The precedent user is absolutely right: the acting of Gianmarco Tognazzi as Uriah Heep is nothing short of excellent;without overplaying ,he looks like a venomous snake ,or a spider catching the Wickfield family in his cobweb.

It's a free adaptation of Dickens but the screenplay ,by and large ,is faithful;the differences are not very smart:in the book,David meets Tommy in his school,not in the Murdstone /Grinsby warehouse;the "crows " and the "one and a thousand nights" are pure invention;although Miss Murdstone is Dora's companion,her brother does not want to marry David's love and he does not intervene in his affair;Both Ham and Steerforth survive but the part of Little Em'ly is underwritten .

Acting,with the exception of Tognazzi , is so-so .Giorgio Pasotti is boyish and lacks charisma to portray David successfully;French S.Stevenin turns Steerforth into a male model .the actresses are undistinguished :Miss Murdstone is ridiculous,Clara ,Dora , Emily and Peggotty are insignificant;only Agnes shows some screen presence and the actress seems to support both David and Pasotti.
