Good colors, the colors of real mystery ... murder and Agata Christie detective character after its tail ... solid acting as well, however, everything else is very bad. The story is full of holes. It doesn't give strong motives to anyone to be a murderer, and in specific situation, everyone could have the motive: people who hated and loved the victim, even you become suspect yourself. We have no tension at all during the whole movie as we have no leads or misleads so the movie becomes interesting as newspaper article on committed murder. Then, no connection at all between the suspects themselves, as between the suspects and the other characters - no plot development. Also, the movie gives impression as the camera is tagged to the back of the detective since he is somehow in almost every scene of the movie. The worst is very pale and amateur finish of the film, pretty disappointing. Should be done much more with all that director had at his disposal. 2 out of 10.
