A little hokey but true to Christie
The acting was a bit stilted in this one but, all in all, not a bad
rendition of a Christie favorite (I'm a HUGE Christie fan). The filming
comes off as sort of soap-opera-ie for the indoor shots but the outdoor
scenes are A-O-K.
I confess (as a Christie apologist) that this is one of Christie's more
implausible mysteries but the director pulled it off darn good, without
making his actors look ridiculous, (always a potential problem with
Christie films). I was especially impressed with the length of this
film, quite long, and a good partial afternoon of DVD or TV
entertainment as far as I am concerned.
To summarize, if you're an absolute Agatha Christie NUT, go ahead and
consider this one an 8-star rating... however, if you are randomly
looking around for ANY film to watch, regardless of genre, and have
never seen a Christie mystery, you might find this to be a TWO.... (or
a ONE!). I liked it a great deal and very much recommend it to

O diabo veste Prada: absolutamente imperdível, pois só a atuação de Meryl Streep provoca o terror necessário para afastar qualquer trainee. A produção de figurinos e locações também é primorosa. At Bertram´s Hotel (2004): Um filme de Agatha Christie cujo personagem principal - Miss Marple, é protagonizado por Geraldine McEwan, tem em seu elenco, como a amiga que ela vai encontrar no Hotel, para a leitura do testamento - lady Selina, vivido por Francesca Annis. Apesar de histórias de padrões e linhas distintas, valem a pena como entretenimento de qualidade..
Very British - and unobtainable in the UK!
I was hooked by Francesca Annis and James Warwick when they played
Tommy and Tuppence in Agatha Christie's Partners in Crime, and as an
avid Christie fan have always wanted to see them again in Why Didn't
They Ask Evans? Although its plot is very picaresque, and suffers from
some of the careless crafting found in Agatha Christie's earlier work,
it is, in fact, an enjoyable book, and has no doubt been adapted
adequately for television.
Infuriatingly, the DVD is not available in the UK, or in the entire
Region 2! I don't suppose it ever will be. Odd, isn't it? I believe
that American viewers have similar difficulties obtaining English films
and television programmes in Region 1 format, Perhaps, one day, there
will be a single standard for all of us..
