MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS
I love Agatha Christie. And I love going to the cinema. So, when there's an AC's book into a movie adaptation I'm as happy as a kid with a lollipop. 🤗
Have you watched Murder on the Orient Express? The old version or this new one with Kenneth Branagh? Leave me down your impressions.
In my opinion, nothing and no one will ever beat David Suchet but I enjoyed Kenneth's version as well. Except... 1 thing. 😔
The only thing I cannot possibly forgive to Kenneth... (SPOILER) the mountains!!!🤔 According to the book, the train gets stuck in the snow, somewhere between Vinkovci and (Slavonski?) Brod. That is the region of Slavonija, Croatia. My homeland.💗 If you Google it you'll notice it's a vast plain (flatland) so seeing those high mountains resembling Himalaya catapulted me right back into the reality. Sort of like Ed Sheeran's cameo in Game of Thrones. 😉 Not good. Every outdoor scene got me protesting, damn no, man, this is NOT how it's supposed to be. Don't get me wrong, I love movies and I fully understand the director's wish to film something different, something new. The landscape did look immensive, gorgeous, the slopes were impressive and the picture of the train stuck right on that bridge - WRONG. 🙈 To someone who knows the territory - it's very annoying. 😣
Dear Mr. Branagh, overall I do think it's a good movie and not a flop. Such a great cast, wow. You surprised me in a positive way with your performance. But for us Croatians and our neighbours, unfortunately that one detail ruins the complete image of the movie. Instead of making me sit in awe, I laughed and shook my head each time Mr. Poirot was outside the train. Man, it looked more like Switzerland or Scandinavia! 😊 Please Mr. Branagh, use Google Earth for your next movie.
Sincerely, a Croatian Agatha Christie fan. Xx .
