THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD

The infectiously joyful The Personal History Of David Copperfield offers a rare combination of factors: beautiful dialogue spoken by good actors; editing that makes the two-hour film feel like 60 minutes; and a storytelling style that feels modern and meta while staying true to – and sincerely in love with – its source material.

The work comes from British film-maker Armando Iannucci, best known for acid-etched portraits of political figures (BBC series The Thick Of It, 2005 to 2012; HBO series Veep, 2012 to 2015). But when he is not making parodies of politics or society, he is also a Dickensophile, having written and presented a documentary on the English writer in 2012, Armando’s Tale Of Charles Dickens.

“The true Dickensian world is our world,” says Iannucci in the documentary (available on YouTube). And to that end, he has cast British-Indian actor Dev Patel

Opinion: Witnessing Deutsche Bank’s tailspin

dhita yudha

No matter how dodgy the deal, profits are everything. That was clearly the motto at Deutsche Bank and attempts to justify the wrongdoing uncovered by the FinCEN scandal seems pointless, writes DW’s Henrik Böhme.

“Everything starts with trust.” That’s how Deutsche Bank wooed clients in the mid-1990s. This slogan, however, has long been history, as the bank completely gambled away the confidence of its customers in the years that followed. The moneylender wanted to play in the financial premier league, so principles were thrown overboard, presumably because it was the only way to increase the bottom line. Returns were everything because the Deutsche bankers’ profit machine had to be lubricated, by all means necessary.
