...did they decide to have Poirot transported into our contemporary times. It's a cheap trick (litterary) and it doesn't work.
This movie pisses on the the grave of Agatha Christie's!
Ustinov is good as Poirot but has weak material to work with. Too bad only two of his five Poirot movies is good enough.
Funny appearance of David Suchet, known for his infamous interpretation of Hercule Poirot som years later. Well, well, well.
