When Poirot invites Mary Debenham (Daisy Ridley ) outside for a picnic so that he can interview her, he makes her write down her name and address. It is then pointed out that she is left handed. Daisy Ridley is in fact left handed. In the book, Poirot tried this on every passenger and all of them were right-handed with the exception of Princess Dragomiroff who refused to write. See more »
Clearly in one scene an actor is seen lighting his cigarette with a classic 'Zippo' lighter (and casually closing the top). As the story takes place in 1934, it may seem anachronistic for the 'Zippo', however the first Zippos were manufactured in 1932. See more »
This movie is actually a piece of art. It takes a really true artist to ruin Agatha Christie at her best and a Dench-lead cast and come up with a boring Branagh soliloquy. What he has made out of Poirot, it's just unbelievable. I don't remember him being described as a walrus in any of the books where he also has converstations with all involved so that readers/audience can participate somehow. In this movie it's just Branagh, he knows it all, he sees it all and he understands it all. Out of thin air. Such wonderful actors were gathered for this monstrosity and it felt as is they were there only a set for Branagh. And oh yes, when talking about scenery - which ignorant fool came up with alps between Vinkovci and Brod??????? The thing is, there is nothing going on in this film, no suspension building up, no substance. It is just a pale vessel for Kenneth Branagh to try shining.
Watch 1974 Lumet version. And from what i hear, it's going to be a sequel, Death on the Nile. Watch 1978 John Guillermin version. Branagh should.
My review does not contain spoilers, there's not enough substance to spoil anything.
