It is a classic movie. However, there have been great changes from the book, and the scene where sir Hugo rapes the girl is quite unconvinsing. To sum up, a great adaptation, not to be watched by kids.
In this adaptation there have been great changes from the book but still it is a classic movie with lovely music and great performances by Ian Richardson, David Healy, Joe melia and Terrence Rigby. It's a pitty therre have been these changes, because in my opinion Ian Richardson is the definete Sherlock Holmes.
