World Premiere - New Orchestral ScoreA.W. Sandberg was a studio director at the Danish studio, Nordisk Film, who became their head of production. There, he launched a series of very ambitious adaptations of Charles Dickens novels. David Copperfield is considered the best of these lavish, beautifully photographed films. The camerawork, staging, and editing is simple, where the attention was focused on bringing the abundance of rich characters from the novels to life. The film manages to capture many of the colors and nuances in Charles Dickens’ haunting semi-autobiographical tale of a boy who is sent away by his stepfather after his mother dies, and manages to triumph over incredible adversities.
