Good story, great twist, campy music I’m glad I didn’t read the reviews first! This was a fine Christie adaptation, although it is decades since I read the book. There is a certain campiness to the film, and the score highlights this immensely. Truly the first time I have heard a dreadfully out-of-tune piano used in a score and not as a prop.

Not the best movie ever but a must see for Agatha Christie fans Read the book before watching this movie. Most annoying was that the undertitles did not work the right way.

I’m a great fan of mysteries and I’m a great fan of mysteries and, particularly, Agatha Christie. I found this film to be lumpy and boring, so “speech” that I glazed over more than once. Generally without suspense and highly unsatisfying in its resolution. No one in the cast is doing his or her best work, and I’m not sure why anyone thought the project was crying out for an American to play British (Glenn Close). It’s definitely not worth the $9.99 rental price. If you must see it, wait until the price comes down.
