  • Jacobi is working at full steam as both the tramp and Dickens, his dedication to the project matched only by Vanessa Redgrave's complete lack of interest.

    Couldn't keep me interested enough to watch with any enthusiasum. Kind of played in the background as I went about other tasks.

    I wanted to like it but overall it was rather slow and boring, real shame considering the actors involved in this.

    This is one of those films that I found odd yet still seemed to enjoy it. Vinnie Jones was quite good in his role. Derek Jacobi was excellent playing Charles Dickens and the hobo in this film. This film started off a little slow and odd. I wasn't sure I was going to like it. But once the mystery started and trying to discover the killer than I was enjoying the film. Then the ending was just a little odd as well. I didn't hate the film because of this. I just expected something a little different with the end. Overall decent so I would suggest people to give it a chance.
