Just saw the movie of "Murder on the Orient Express" 2010, starring David Suchet - I really enjoyed it! David Suchet makes a great Poirot, his accent, character, the moustache....hehehe, Agatha Christie was right in saying that Poirot is so full of himself, but David Suchet portrays it in a way that is admirable rather than irritating
I have read a couple of Agatha Christie's mysteries...this being one of them...it been a long time since i picked up one of her works. i will try to watch this movie adaptation coz this is one that i like best amongst i've read. there is this other film adaptation as well of agatha's....poirot is being played by another actor..and this setting take place with a family on a vacation in a desert...in egypt i think...and a woman was murdered outside her tent while sitting there looking like she is just taking a nap when in fact she is already dead. anyone knows that title and version of that film?
Hi Laila! Oh yes i believe the title of the episode you are talking is "Appointment with Death". I'm not familiar though with any other adaption, except the one of David Suchet. Here is the episode. I hope you enjoy it, David suchet really makes a great Poirot! If you try it and enjoy it, you might be interested to check out the episode list I wrote here:
Thanks for that help Wanda! and i believe you're right about Suchet being a great Poirot. I always thought that Poirot's character is of a severe face and yet with gentle manner and he had that down pat. I remember now that the other version starred Lauren Bacall in it.
