Did You Know?

Trivia:
In the scene at Denderah where Poirot and the others are entering the temple and the custodian is looking over the parapet, on the stones is carved a graffiti by Charles Irby and James Mangles, two Royal navy captains who were traveling in Egypt after the Napoleonic War. They helped Giovanni Battista Belzoni clear the entrance to the temple of Abu Simble in 1817. This is shown in "Egypt" (2005).See more »

Good, but not great, 3 March 2012
Author: thirstyfriend :

First of all, this is an Agatha Christie must. Reading the book is the most effective thing you could do if you really want to take part in the story. Now about the movie, I must say I'm not exactly thrilled about it and here are the positive and negative features.

POSITIVE: the script was well written (with only small flaws), the music was appropriate, the scenery was amazing (I have to say I was even taken away from the story by the wonderful views of Egypt), and there were some wonderful actors in this episode. Suchet is brilliant as always and I really enjoyed seeing the likes of James Fox and Frances de la Tour. I think Emily Blunt/Linett did OK and i loved the acting of JJ Feild as Simon Doyle as he gave the character a certain subtlety and substance unseen before.The ending was truly magnificent: with the departure from the boat and the flashback.There was also a lot of emphasis on Poirot's feelings, and i think this was amazing as we don't usually see this coming from him.

NEGATIVE: I really, really didn't like the actress playing Jacqueline de Bellefort. She seemed way too cold and hard and in my opinion she tried to hard. Never have i felt that she could do what she did out of love, but out of pure sadistic pleasure.I just didn't think she was the Jacqueline Agatha Christie had in mind. Another negative aspect was that, unlike other episodes, it tried to make obvious from the beginning who the culprit was, so as to probably let the viewer to digest the information more easily, without finding it hocus-pocus, but that's the main point of Hercule Poirot' mysteries.

All in all, it was pretty good, that's why I'm giving it an 8. But if you want the real Death on the Nile, then read the book.
