Though the film is based on a work of fiction, three of the readers in the library, all of them suspects in the golem case, are real people who did at the time live in London: Karl Marx, George Gissing and Dan Leno. See more »
The great Dan Leno first appeared on stage in 1884 - so he became popular in the late 1880s and 1890s. Karl Marx died in 1883, one year before Dan Leno first took to the stage. There could be no point in time when someone could meet both Karl Marx and a successful, popular Dan Leno. See more »

There was so much good going on in this movie it's just a shame the big reveal, and they do make a meal out of it, was meant to be such a shock, when really you knew from the very beginning..
Which is really annoying because if they had thought just a little bit more, just a little bit more subtlety this would be pretty good. unfortunately the only people who will be surprised at who the killer is are people who have never watched any other movie ever. Then it will be surprising, for the rest, it really is painful to watch as the movie dances around the obvious.
Again, everything else was good, the setting and the way it played out like a play while everyone was literally playacting was nice and different to other movies. worth a watch, just don't expect to be surprised.
