Trivia:
Although it looks like the film was shot on an actual island with a mansion, it is far from the truth. The production was shot in Crimea, utilizing the peninsula's two famous mansions, the Swallow's Nest and the Vorontsov Estate. Both houses were situated on large, circular cliffs that Crimea is famous for, thus creating the illusion of an island. However, when the house is seen in the exterior scenes, it is actually a scale model, shot with actors using forced perspective.See more »

As faithful as a dog, 25 December 2005
Author: Matthew Chapman from Canada

Amazing! AllI can say is amazing! The best movie adaptation yet! I liked the realistic reactions rather than the wise cracks from older versions. Vera was played to perfection right down to the hanging and the Judge, all I can say is brilliant. I'm glad they played out the ending there versions were afraid to do, and the setting is just perfect to the way Christie described it! I'm also happy on the way they did the death scenes in that manor. Aside from liking Vera's breakdown, I was equally amazed by Miss Brents break down to her smashing her bible through the window! The score was just plain creepy! My only grip is the horrible subtitles, that look like they were written by some 4-year old! Plus they were completely off. Like the guy would speak and seconds later, the words would prompt on. Next time I'm watching it subtitle less, after all, it was so close to the book I felt like I didn't even need the subtitles! Overall I give it 9 out of 10 N i g g e rs!
