Goofs

Although John Nettles affects a heavy French action initially, it virtually disappears as time goes on. John Nettles' character is French. When he is relating the story to the three men on the train he is speaking in English, but since he is meant to be a Frenchman speaking in another tongue, he speaks with a French accent. In the flashback scenes he is 'speaking French', and so does not speak with a French accent. So, his French accent does not disappear, it is used to denote the times when he is not speaking in his own language. See more »

Story makes no sense and is awful
14 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Four men are on a train and they are all discussing the death of a woman named Felicie who supposedly had multiple personalities. It is about a girl that was living in a home for children that have no where to go.

John Nettles is not part of the group of 3 but he knows the woman they are discussing because he lost his parents and lived in the same home which is huge.

RAOUL/Nettles goes on to tell the men about some of the people he made friends with Felicie and Annette. He describes how pretty, smart and talented Annette is.

He says him and Felicie were Annette's slaves like it was a joke. He loves Annette. Annette was mean, she called Felicie names and mocked her. That did not seem wrong to Raoul/Nettles.

This is not a Agatha Christie story. She never made the main character look good who was evil and she did not put believe in spiritualism at valid. The characters that were nuts or bad had Crosses around their necks. She did not mock religion like in this story.
