A classic movie redone very well
17 March 2013 | by rdvljunkSee all my reviews

Leave it to the British to make a perfect remake of this classic movie. I'm sorry Hollywood, but you have no clue how to make movies like this in which English style is mixed with suspense and a o-so-thin layer of humor.

I accidentally fell into the start of the movie which was broad-casted on the BBC when I was zapping and was immediately taken by the perfect styling, acting and atmosphere of the movie. As if you were right back in time and present in the story. The acting of beautiful young actress Tuppence Middleton (Iris Carr) is very convincing, like that of all the other actors.

I really enjoyed the movie that follows the original very well, only using modern acting and methods.

Highly recommended
