Death on the Nile

Over-extended and sloppily characterised Agatha Christie whodunit, with Ustinov's Poirot investigating the murder of an heiress aboard a steamer in the 30s. Nostalgic period recreation is everything, with the cast reduced to a gallery of stylish eccentrics and the whole film slavishly modelled on the earlier Murder on the Orient Express.

One of the best movies based on Agatha Christy's novel. Only wish Poirot was acted by David Suche.
