Amusing; as always when Peter Ustinov is Hercule Poirot. The way he talks (extremely polite), the way he dresses (extremely conservative), the way he eats (extremely self-indulgent), the way he thinks (extremely logically & intelligent) and the way he behaves (unbiased & incorruptible) is very much enjoyable. Same applies to Albert Finney in "Murder on the Orient Express". A delight.
Gradevole trasposizione della Christie di Hamilton,che non raggiunge livelli di altri lavori,ma grazie alla leggerezza e all'ambientazione "feriale" conduce in porto una buona storia,con i personaggi legati tra di loro come in altre vicende analoghe. Ottimo il "dipanarsi" finale,con Ustinov-Poirot autentico mattatore.
