"MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA" (2001) Review

One can categorize the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" Televisione Film into two categories. The ones made between 1989 and 2001, featured the supporting characters Captain Arthur Hasting, Miss limone (Hercule Poirot), and Chief Inspector Japp. The ones made post-2001 sporadically featured the mystery writer, Adriande Oliver. The very last Televisione movie that featured Poirot's close friend, Hastings, turned out to be 2001's "MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA".

Based upon Agatha Christie's 1936 novel, "MURDER IN MESOPOTAMIA" told of Hercule Poirot's investigation into the...

"THE MURDER OF ROGER ACKROYD" (2000) Review

As many fan of Agatha Christie are aware, one of her most highly acclaimed and controversial novels is "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd".

One of these days, I will get around to Leggere Christie's novel and comparing it to the Televisione adaptation. Right now, I am going to focus on the latter.

Directed da Renny Rye and adapted da Clive Exton, "PERIL AT END HOUSE" is the first full-length Televisione movie aired on "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT". It is also about Belgian-born...

"CARDS ON THE TABLE" (2005) Review

Most Agatha Christie fan tend to regard movie and Televisione adaptations of her novels with a kindly eye. Especially if those adaptations closely followed its literary source. Not all adaptations have done this, including "CARDS ON THE TABLE", ITV's 2005 adaptation of the author's 1936 novel.

I have always wondered how Christie fan regarded "CARDS ON THE TABLE". I suspect many Christie fan would not regard it as a close adaptation of the 1936 novel. Also, the story turned out to be one of those mysteries of the "locked room" variety that many fan sometimes...
