Volledige Rolbezetting - A Christmas Carol - (IV)


Korte inhoudsopgave:
Ebenezer Scrooge (Jim Carrey) begint de kerstdagen zoals gewoonlijk met krenterige minachting naar zijn trouwe hulp en snauwend naar zijn vrolijke neef. Maar de geesten van zijn Kerst- verleden,- heden en -toekomst nemen hem mee op een opzienbarende reis waarbij de oude Scrooge, met veel tegenzin, de waarheid onder ogen moet zien. Hierdoor realiseert hij zich dat hij zijn hart moet openen voordat het te laat is, om alle ongelukkige jaren weer goed te kunnen maken.

Opmerkingen:
Jim Carrey's first project with Walt Disney Pictures.

In the Cratchit home, there is a portrait of the story's author, Charles Dickens, hanging by the fireplace.

The movie is set in the year 1843. At the beginning of the film, when Scrooge signs Marley's death certificate, it is dated “1836.” A subtitle tells us that Scrooge's encounter with the spirits takes place, “Seven Christmas Eves Later,” making it 1843. Also, the Ghost of Christmas Present mentions that he has “eighteen-hundred forty-two brothers.” The year, 1843, is significant; it is the year that Charles Dickens wrote and published “A Christmas Carol.”

Anachronisms: A group of street carolers sings “Joy to the World” in the film. However, the movie takes place in 1843. The song “Joy to the World,” as we know it, wasn't created until 1848, when Lowell Mason, a Boston music publisher, combined music from Handel's “Messiah” with lyrics from another hymn by Isaac Watts. Also, “Joy to the World” was originally used as a regular Sunday hymn. It wasn't considered a Christmas song until 1911, when a recording by singer Elise Stevenson and the Trinity Choir became a Christmas hit.

Anachronisms: In the scene where the Ghost of Christmas Present shows Scrooge the two children, the boy says “Naff off!” to Scrooge. The expression was not coined until the 1960s and did not enter general use until the following decade when it was used as a substitute for swearing in a popular, early evening BBC comedy.

Anachronisms: Scenes showing London from the air incorporate numerous anachronistic features, including the Millennium Footbridge (opened 2000), the reconstructed Globe Theatre (opened 1997) and Southwark Bridge (opened 1921).
