Storyline

Recovering from a sudden collapse, Poirot finds little comfort in doctor's orders confining him to a strict regimen at an island health resort with Captain Hastings. However, better medicine is to be found in the murder of another guest, a famous film actress, and a long list of suspects. Written by Mark Cabot Robinson

That Silly Mustache!
29 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love David Suchet's portrayal of Hercule Poirot. He succeeds Albert Finney and Sir Peter Ustinov in the television program of the series. David Suchet is fine and entertaining in his performance but you can't ignore that mustache that seems so fake. While the story is a mystery surrounded by possible suspects, Poirot has Hastings (Played by Hugh Fraser) and Miss Lemon. I enjoyed Carolyn Pickles in the role of Mrs. Brewster but I am not familiar with the other cast members who all did admirable jobs in bringing Dame Agatha Christie's mystery alive to recent audiences. I don't think they'll ever be anybody else to play Hercule Poirot as well as David Suchet. Sure there was Ustinov and even Albert Finney, but Suchet seems perfectly suited to the character. The film is pretty good even if you're not a regular fan of the series.
