The Mystery of a Hansom Cab is an emotive Australian crime drama, with
an outstanding cast and lavish sets and detail. It is a telemovie of
Fergus Hume's book, first published in Australia in 1886. Set in
Melbourne, it brings to vivid life the privilege and struggle of the
upper and lower classes of Melbournian life from the 1800s.
The plot centers around an engaged couple whose marriage is left in
limbo when the groom is held on charges of murdering an odious
blackmailer to the Bride's affluent Father. It has an almost Wildean
sense of society and emotion, and in true crime tradition, the viewer
is left pondering the guilty right to the end.
The all Australian cast has a strong gravitas. Sometimes the period's
drab and flowing attire causes a little confusion of who is who, but
eventually faces stick to characters, and the viewer connects to the
intriguing plot. The two detectives have dissimilar, but striking
charms. "Kenny"'s Shane Jacobson is a little out of his depth as the
main prosecutor; but plays an entertaining role, while Felix Williamson
is devilishly suave as Shane's sharply-cut adversary in law. Jessica De
Gouw is lovable as the bride-to-be, and together with the groom, Brian
Fitzgerald, they make a charming couple whose drama fills the movie.
Michael Carman plays a lovely characterised villain. John Waters as the
family patriarch , and Marco Chiappi as his friend and barrister, have
strong and grounding presences.
Sets are beautiful and graphic; though not as lavish as overseas
productions. And on occasion, prominent Melbourne locations are shot
with CGI backdrops of the olden town. The back-street dens have a
glamour and seediness that brings them to vivid life (similarly to "The
Harp in the South"), and the splendor of the mansions is convincing,
though shot on a smallish budget.
Mention should also be made of the smooth but engaging score. and
production on the whole is creditable.
Mystery of a Hansom Cab is a period drama that the BBC churn-out - with
more polish, but less charm - but that Australian cinema does not
achieve so often. This lovely but sometimes-confusing movie is
definitely worth a second viewing.
