The Berlin Film Festival will see the premiere of the latest Sherlock Holmes film, titled Mr. Holmes. Starring Ian McKellen in the lead as a retired detective-turned beekeeper in Sussex, it might be a surprise to see an Aged Holmes, sometimes even in conversation with piecemeal appearances thrown in by characters, such as the housekeeper’s son, Roger but the movie is interesting because of the difference in portrayal of Holmes. He is now 93 and has trouble keeping track of his collection of memories, and in an attempt to heal it, ends up in post-war Japan.
