Version reviewed was on broadcast TV, dubbed in Spanish language, and shown in 4 consecutive one hour installments. Very well produced adaption of Dickens, David Copperfield. The cinematography, locations, costumes, acting were all superb. In comparison to a two hour David Copperfield one would have expected all the major scenes here to be extended, but many were surprisingly of the same length. What really differentiates this nearly four hour Italian production from the rest is the acting of Gianmarco Tognazzi as Uriah Heep. His interpretation of the character is nothing short of excellent. Never before has such a performance exuded such a slimy snake like eeriness. As the movie progresses Gianmarco's acting soon begins to dominate. This film is well worth watching just for the enjoyment of watching Mr. Tognazzi's interpretation! Furthermore, the story moves along at a rapid pace, not a dull moment to be found.
