Storyline

Miss Marple receives a most interesting request from Mr. Jason Rafiel, with whom she'd struck an acquaintance some years before. He would like her to solve a crime but, does not tell her what it might be, who might have been involved or where it might have occurred. In fact, he can't be sure that a crime was committed at all. The only information she gets is a booking on a tour of stately homes and gardens so, along with her nephew and godson Lionel, she sets off to see what she can learn. When they reach the village of Abbey Ducis, it begins to make sense. Not only did Mr. Rafiel live in the area it is also where his son Michael was accused, though never convicted, of murdering his fiancée, Verity Hunt. Father and son were long estranged but Michael lives rough and has so ever since. There is also the apparent coincidence that another young woman, Nora Brent, went missing at the same time as Verity and was last being seen in Michael Rafiel's car. When Elizabeth Temple, a fellow ... Written by garykmcd

Miss Marple appears to be psychic
17 August 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I find it hard to believe there are so many great reviews here regarding this movie. In my opinion it is the worst of all Miss Marple movies. Although nicely photographed, the weak plot left me totally unsatisfied. Seems to me the viewer must be taken by the hand throughout the movie, learning clues step by step, until finally every detail is known and you only have to make the puzzle complete. Which is what Miss Marple is so good at. In this movie you get the same 'clues' over and over again (at a very slow pace I might add). And, in the end all is revealed by Miss Marple without hardly any explanation at all. How did she come to this conclusion? She must be psychic! After seeing the movie end, I didn't know if I should laugh or cry. Never a good sign if you've watched a thriller.
