Murder on the Orient Express (2001)
Unnecessary modernized version...
It follows quite faithfully the original story but the modernizing is very disturbing... Moreover as a huge fan of David Suchet, I can't see anybody else in this role... One of the other comments talks about Poirot being shown in love with a young Russian lady "who is given the name of the original old lady on the train"... I think the author is mistaken Countess Vera Rossakoff (a Russian jewel thief met in another story and, even if it has never been expressed, with whom Poirot is secretly in love) and Princess Dragomirov (original Russian character in "Murder on the Orient Express"). Anyway, the author of this note is right when saying that Princess Dragomirov is unnecessarily replaced by the widow of a South American dictator... In the original version, Poirot proves that the handkerchief with a "H" on it is Princess Natalia Dragomirov's by explaining that the "N" in Russian alphabet looks like an European "H". In this version, it's much more complicated to explain... Even Poirot could not have made this out!
