Director Roman Polanski gives one of Charles Dickens' best-loved stories a new and dynamic interpretation in this period drama. Oliver Twist (Barney Clark) is a young orphan in Victorian England who has been sent to a dank workhouse run by the miserly Mr. Bumble (Jeremy Swift) when it is learned there is no one to care for him. When Oliver dares to ask for more gruel, he is sent away to live.
And yet, it makes sense, because if there is a running motif in Polanski’s full body of work, it would be the loss of innocence, which Oliver Twist fits perfectly within. The movie came and went in theaters pretty quietly in 2005, and few people even know that this movie exists, which is too bad because it is probably the best cinematic version of this story since David Lean’s classic in.

Polanski's Oliver Twist is a flawed but harrowing, empathetic view of the world seen through the eyes of its most powerless and invisible citizens. Full Review. Miles Fielder The List. April 27.
Roman Polanski’s slide into respectability continues with Oliver Twist and those of us who love his earlier works with a passion which borders on the indecent are likely to feel the same letdown that we felt upon watching The Pianist.Polanski, the satyr of Hollywood who gloried in sun-drenched rot and urban malignancy, has gone straight and instead of creating a Dickensian world from the.

Roman Polanski directs the classic Charles Dickens' story of a young orphan boy who gets involved with a gang of pickpockets in 19th Century London. Abandoned at an early age, Oliver Twist (BARNEY CLARK) is forced to live in a workhouse lorded over by the awful Mr. Bumble, who cheats the boys of their meager rations. Desperate yet determined, Oliver makes his escape to the streets of London.
Twist by Polanski is a rather excellent 28-minute making-of featurette in which Roman Polanski discusses the whys and hows of this umpteenth adaptation, and is joined by interview participants like screenwriter Ronald Harwood, producer Robert Benmussa, actors Ben Kingsley and Jamie Foreman, and several others. All the bases are covered here, from the adapting to the casting to the shooting and.
It’s a dark film, though, and adults should note that some of the themes (there’s a murder, and the film opens with Oliver’s mother’s death) aren’t suitable for younger eyes. In 2005, Roman Polanski directed an adaptation of the Dickens story, with Ben Kingsley as Fagin, Jamie Foreman as Bill Sikes and Barney Clark as Oliver, which is enjoyable but not particularly memorable.
The mother of all Victorian orphan epics gets remade for the umpteenth time, as Oliver Twist goes under the lens of acclaimed filmmaker Roman Polanski for this 2005 release. Polanski's update of the classic Dickens tale is highly competent, yet wholly unnecessary -- which may have more to do with the era of its release than any objective judgment of its cinematic worth.
So, is Oliver Twist spiritedly dashing through London on that poster, or running away from Roman Polanski? I guess Polanski got away with this because it's, like, the one coming-of-age's story that just features boys, though it's still his most shameless attempt to gain sympathy with depressing autobiographies. The Holocaust survivor knows intimately a coming-of-age like that of Oliver Twist.
With Oliver Twist, the Oscar-winning director returns to the 19th century England he so vividly painted in his 1979 Tess--except this time around it's a bleak existence in the mud-caked streets of Victorian London being used as a backdrop instead of the lush English countryside. Polanski and his team painstakingly recreate the newly industrialized London from the ground up. It's a bustling.
