The opening scene takes place in 1934 Jerusalem, more exactly next to the Western Wall (also known as the Wailing Wall). There are at least two major factual errors in this scene: 1- There was no yard in front of the Wall till after Israel took over the place in 1967. 2- Hercule Poirot presents a mystery he had to solve that took place in a church. In his words to the public who came to see him in front of the Western Wall, he mentions that the church is The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, that he claims to be, in his words, "just above them". Well, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is indeed in the Old City of Jerusalem, but in another part of it: In the Christian Quarter. Above the place where he stands there's, in fact, a different holy place: the Dome of the Rock, but that's an Islamic shrine - not a church. See more »
Diane and I viewed this beauty of a film this afternoon, and we both thoroughly enjoyed a magical cinema event: I use these words because the movie takes you out of your own reality and places you in another world that is not macabre or dangerous but filled with beautiful people, costumes and settings.
Perhaps the reader can tell that I love being removed from the mundanity of our ordinary existence. This beautifully constructed film filled with marvellous actors who are dressed in gorgeous timely costumes and set to work in spectacular train compartments and asked to use a perfect script will leave many cinema-goers anticipating more.
If I were much younger, I would not hunger for the movies from the Directors Period in the 70s and 80s when they were allowed to make Great Movies rather than only the money-men. In any event, see this film for its sublime attractions painted by Kenneth Branagh.
