I don't know much about Agatha Christie (more than she's a famous writer) but I can say one thing. ''Death on the Nile'' is really great! I love this kind of ''Cluedo-movies'' where there is a suspense over the scene and everybody is a suspect. Sure, there are many more that will go to ''Scream'' for this kind of thing, at least teenagers, but I can say with a very clean concious that this is a really good movie with class.
