Bad as the others in the series (Les petits meurtres de A. Christie).
9 June 2010 | by (Capital, Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

What's wrong with a Christie's adaptation that doesn't look like one? Nothing in principle, as long as it's good for its own sake. Which isn't the case.

Farcical, theatrical, attempting vainly to be funny, laden with cheap philosophy pretending to update Christie: "gays have a right to be happy", it's ultimately deceiving. As a comic relief, in the end, while the credits play, you have some audio clips with the best quotes. Fine for realizing their aim is so modest.

When a film is very bad, you can always choose choose which is the nicest gal: Valentine is a good candidate, we see generous shots of her bosom. Esther is probably the queen, played by a rather unknown actress, Lucie Lucas. Hélène Vincent's Kristin is sexy and walks like a model, which makes an interesting contrast for her character is reputedly cold. IMDb reminded me she won a César for "La vie est un long fleuve tranquille (1988)" and was directed by Téchine and Patrice Chéreau on stage. Charley Fouquet has a vague resemblance to fellow actress Geena Davis. Marthe and Jacko are the only believable characters, which makes them stand out, like good pupils among not so good ones. Emmanuel Patron has done better things, even for TV, like "Nestor Burma" episodes and "Sauf le respect" on film.

Watch it with a painkiller at hand :).
