Mr. Holmes

© Ascot Elite Entertainment Group

★★★★★½

"But the movie never overplays its hand or succumbs to cloying sentimentality. It moves through its three parallel plot lines, which are reminiscent of Condon’s Gods and Monsters, in well-measured, stately strides; its tale of physical and mental decline – and the problematic and fleeting notion of memory in general – does not descend into hopelessness and gloom, but is rather counterbalanced by moments of tender wit and glimpses of what Holmes’ mind, even in its reduced capacity, is still capable of achieving."

Ganze Kritik auf The Zurich English Student (online einsehbar).
