Faithful adaptation but lacks effectiveness
22 July 2014 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

First time I watched this movie was more than 20 years ago. I had a chance to watch it again and decided to write a review.

USSR adaptations are known to be very faithful to the original work. This is no different.

While the movie wasn't too bad, I felt it lacked in several ways. Except for Mr. Poirot and Ms Buckley, the rest of the characters were boring. I felt like they were just there to say the words and lacked any point (as we all know, the supporting cast is there to raise doubt and create confusion in regard to the motives).

Each of her friends was there to create a motive, but it was not explored in depth. While I had doubts about each, there was nothing to help leading me down the wrong path.

Unless you are a fan of Agatha Christie's work, this is not a movie for you.
