MAKING "MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS" (V) (Laurent Bouzereau, 2004) **1/2
17 February 2009 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Ever since the inception of DVD, Laurent Bouzereau has practically cornered the market in featurettes detailing the behind-the-scenes of classic films; this look into the making of the most commercially successful Agatha Christie adaptation is an exemplary effort, with the participation of several of the people involved (including director Sidney Lumet, producers John Brabourne and Richard Goodwin, production/costume designer Tony Walton and, of the surviving cast members, Jacqueline Bisset, Sean Connery and Michael York). As expected, the many backstage vicissitudes are discussed (though, frankly, there is little that cannot be easily gleaned from the film's trivia section on IMDb!) and, equally unsurprisingly, they all have fond memories of the reasonably arduous shooting (filming took place all over Europe in a cramped single setting replicating the train compartments and where the schedules of numerous international stars had to be accommodated) and nothing but praise for the end result. Which, perhaps, is where its main problem lies: a certain lack of objectivity. Also, it is decidedly disappointing not to find Finney among the interviewees or that no mention whatsoever is made of the subsequent Poirot films, especially since the same production team of MURDER itself were also behind the first few of those as well.
