Storyline

While on their honeymoon in Egypt, newlyweds Simon Doyle and Linett Ridgeway are constantly harassed by Simon's ex-fiancée Jackie De Bellefort who feels her ex-best friend has stolen the love of her life. A holidaying Hercules Poirot counsels Jackie to put an end to her antics, fearing that all of this can only end in tragedy. When one of the passengers is killed while on a cruise down the Nile, Poirot must sift through an odd assortment of passengers, all of whom may have something to hide. There is Linett's financial advisor from the US, her French maid who clearly has something to hide, the Austrian doctor who keeps mostly to himself and the left leaning philosopher who despises the rich.

Vibrant, tense thriller that captures the spirit of Christie
6 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Given the wide variety of Agatha Christie adaptations out there, this has to rate somewhere at the top.

While some adaptations (especially some recent adaptations of Marple) seem determined to show 'what a jolly good wheeze' it is to be producing an Agatha Christie - and then proceed to show no respect for her meticulous characterisations and plot lines, this version of Death on the Nile shows a gratifying amount of respect for the book, while retaining the inherent humour of Christie's writing (largely thanks to a wonderful script by Kevin Elyot). The use of music is great - both adding to the tension and building upon the already immaculate period effect of the lavish costumes and breathtaking settings. And the cast are equally spot on - each a vibrant contribution to the whole but none surpassing David Suchet's wonderful Poirot.

If only they were all like this.
