"Very good cozy mystery"
La storia dell’avaro Scrooge, visitato dagli spiriti, è stata riproposta più volte in rappresentazioni teatrali e cinematografiche, ma la sua versione originale, così come uscita dalla penna di uno dei più grandi romanzieri della storia, è insuperata. Un pezzo di bravura, e allo stesso tempo il manifesto della visione della vita di Dickens, fa magicamente sorgere dalle sue pagine lo spirito del Natale, con colori, suoni, profumi, e buoni sentimenti. Musiche tradizionali arrangiate da Ivan Genesio.
