I would prefer be Walt's children instead (dad)

Fugitive Polanski explained he made this movie for his children because he couldn't show them his other movies ! Well, as a adult, i found the movie depressive, gloom, sad and i would be a kid it would have surely left me terrified, upset ! For 2 hours, you watch a poor orphan suffering in his body, heart and mind and honestly there's nothing to enjoy ! I don't know the motive of Dickens too but it's not the first time I would be disappointed by such a gritty, acid writer ! Sure you will understand how English capitalist got their capital by spoiling ordinary families and make them die at work but there are other less difficult works to get it !

Polanki's Twist.

Oliver Twist (2005): Dir: Roman Polanski / Cast: Barney Clark, Ben Kingsley, Jamie Foreman, Harry Eden, Leanne Rowe: Another reworking of the Charles Dickens story about an orphan on the run from neglect and abuse. Twist uses survival instincts to escape from a cruel household yet falls within the realm of child thieves headed by an elderly man bent on using him for the same purpose. When he is housed by upper class gentleman who sees beyond the surface Twist finally discovers what love and acceptance is all about. Directed by Roman Polanski in similar fashion to his earlier film The Pianist, also about someone searching for refuge. Barney Clark brings intelligence and charm to the role of Twist who endures brutal hardship but ultimately learns the value of friendship and trust. Ben Kingsley as the youthful gang leader steals the film in his promise of success and delivery of broken trust. Jamie Foreman steals scenes as the villain Sikes whose acts of cruelty knows no boundaries yet consequence ultimately surface. Harry Eden plays the resourceful Artful Dodger. Leanne Rowe plays a young prostitute named Nancy who is in an abusive relationship. Despite its many translations, Polanski succeeds greatly here. Early century beautifully realized with a world that relates in stunning affect to the opening drawing or painting that opens and closes the film. Score: 10 / 10

Nobody will like this review...

Now, I like Polanski's movies. But this movie saw SLOW as molasses. Now, the sets, costumes, all look great. The filming, the accents felt like England at that time. The feel of London, the ages where children roamed the streets and stole food, because they had nothing. But as we watched it, I just thought it was WAY to slow.

It showed a good look at the rich and the poor at the time. And justice, there was none for the children, really, and I'm sure that's the way it was.

People, the harlots, just trying to eek out a living.

Two stars for the sets and costumes. But slow.....
