Sidney Lumet's assured directing and the star-filled cast over come this Agatha Christie adaptation's overall slightness.

A superb cast and a classic murder/mystery combined with an elegant, European style - all the elements combine to form an overall excellent film and helps solidify Sidney Lumet as one of the great directors. I'm not one that seeks out mystery films that often, but this is worth watching.

A solid mystery, with a big cast. I enjoy these types of films, when they are done this good. Definitely worth a look.
