Uneasy Dreams: The Life of Mr Pickwick (1970) - extract

  • Description

    For more on the BFI's Dickens on Screen project go to http://www.bfi.org.uk/dickens This short impressionistic film by Jeremy Marre, a director better known for making music documentaries, takes 'The Pickwick Papers' by Charles Dickens as its starting point and uses archival film, Georgian cartoons and dramatised sequences to illustrate key scenes from Pickwick's life. Lightly humorous in the Dickens tradition, it is also quietly sad and self-reflexive too. (William Fowler) All titles on the BFI Films channel are preserved in the vast collections of the BFI National Archive.
