Agatha Christie based the Armstrong story on the Lindbergh kidnapping and murder of 1932. In film, the fictitious Col. Armstrong's wife Sonia Goldenberg Armstrong and her family are Jewish. Lindbergh was very anti-Semitic and in the late '30s & into the '40s; he was a Nazi sympathizer who virulently opposed U.S. entry into World War II. See more »
Poirot wears an elaborate mustache protector the first night on the train. The second night, however, he doesn't, which is out of character, seeing as how he psychologically needs everything to be perfect. See more »
You are a strange, peculiar man.
I am of an age where I know what I like and what I do not like. What I like, I enjoy enormously. What I dislike, I cannot abide. For instance, the temporary pleasantries before what is determined to be a business discussion.

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.
