Elevator Pitch A long retired Sherlock Holmes keeps bees in the grounds of his cliff top house, assisted by the son of his housekeeper, and now suffering from memory loss he is plagued by flashbacks from his last case, requiring him to investigate it.
Content Someone jumps in front of a train(unseen) otherwise no problem for even the most squeamish of us.
A View This film relies heavily on the acting ability of Sir Ian, and in my view this might not be quite enough to sustain what is in the end a slightly unsatisfactory plot.
