The Personal History of David Copperfield

Armando Iannucci, UK, USA, 2019o

s
vBack

A fresh and distinctive take on Charles Dickens’ semi-autobiographical masterpiece, The Personal History of David Copperfield, set in the 1840s, chronicles the life of its title character as he navigates a chaotic world to find his elusive place within it. From his unhappy childhood to the discovery of his gift as a storyteller and writer, David’s journey is by turns hilarious and tragic, but always full of life, colour and humanity.

Dans cette adaptation du roman David Copperfield, de Charles Dickens, Armando Iannucci jette un regard frais sur la jeunesse mouvementée de l’auteur, élevé à l’époque victorienne par une mère seule qui traversera toutes sortes d’épreuves avant de pouvoir enfin sortir la tête de l’eau.

Jean Siag

Armando Iannucci a l’immense mérite de rappeler l’imagination foisonnante du grand romancier, sa capacité de passer avec aisance du tragique au comique, grâce à une galerie de personnages formidables : David Copperfield, c’est à la fois un roman d’apprentissage et un récit d’aventures picaresques. Pour rendre justice à la richesse du roman dans un film de deux heures, Iannucci a compris que tous les personnages sans exception devaient être campés par des acteurs de composition de premier ordre, capables de s’imposer à l’écran en quelques secondes.
