Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

That sad violin really got me.  That scene in Holmes' room was so tender and sad. When Watson was playing the violin it was like he was gently caressing Holmes himself.  So sweet.

You. It's always you. John Watson, you keep me right.

Russian Mrs. Hudson and Mycroft in "The Empty House". Simply the best:

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

The perfect proof that you must not have a big budget (or any budget at all) to create a humorous and hilarious Sherlock Holmes adaptation. John Cleese as Sherlock and "The Strange Case of the End of Civilisation as we know it":

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkH-ztzkuLU

The only version of Sherlock in which Sherlock is shot and you die laughing over it.
Plus, their mockery of useless politicians is priceless.

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

nakahara , this is truly hilarious, many thanks for sharing! 🌹 Monty Pythons guys are always adorable!

Btw, I looove the Russian adaptation, too! Both of the heroes  are there  so incredible lively and real !

There exist also a Russian movie with "femlock", called "My dearly beloved detective"  with Shirley Holmes and Jane Watson as protagonists. Quite funny, but by far not that good as the "true" one. 😜

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

Oh, DramaQueen, thank you for that link you posted. I love Russian takes on Sherlock Holmes but I was never aware this "femlock" existed. Very nice tip for watching! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

nakahara, you're very welcome.🌷

Oh, it’s very pleasing to know, you like the old Russian adaptation, too!

Apropos this "femlock", I like the actress who is playing Miss Holmes, she is quite convincing, even in the comedy. And she was very famous in Soviets.

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

Just finished watching the quite new Russian series "Sherlock Holmes" (2013).
Has anyone also seen this one? Some feedbacks to share?
I think, there are a couple of really fresh ideas as also some witty passages.

I'm not familiar with it myself. Do share the things you liked about it.

This is the "new" Russian Holmes. Yay or nay?

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

@Yitzock

I really like the idea of young fidgety nerd Holmes and older, experienced Dr. Watson. Mrs. Hudson is also quite young, forty something and.....(spoiler alarm) Watson fell in love with her!
Also an very nice point is that  Mycroft and Sherlock are twins! It's very useful when Sherlock needs some help of his bro! 😉
I loved some "Easter eggs"  with hints to other (previous ) movies. And the idea that in his novels Watson made Holmes to look like a superhero we all  know. Holmes himself told Watson, how he should describe him in his writings. Very witty done.
I liked to see (especially) Holmes and Watson in kilts on "The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual".
And good humour in general.
The final fight with Moriarty in the snow at icebound Reichenbach was very impressive. Never thought of this - it could be winter indeed!

I disliked only the violence of Dr. Watson,  who boxes Holmes (sometimes unconscious) in almost each episode. It should be his kind of "upbringing"  of his strange fellow. Ok, the Doctor tended Holmes afterward, but ....you understand me, I hope.😩

Also I did not really like the love story Adler-Holmes (though, Irene is a very handsome girl). They are like teenager, teasing each other all the time. Then kissing, then planing to escape together. The end of their relationship is very tragic.

So, here is a review in English on the first episode. Enjoy.

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

Sounds like an interesting interpretation of the characters. I would consider checking it out if it was available in a language I can understand.

Re: Holmes/Watson from Other Adaptations

I think, I'm already quite in love with the new Russian interpretation!

I really like this young emotional nerd Holmes (actor Igor Petrenko was 34 at age) and the good old "sentimental martinet" Watson (Andrey Panin was 15 years senior).

Here a short funny video about Dr. Watson. 😉




And another, about Holmes, quite emotional.💔
