Elegant, escapist entertainment at its stylishly European best. This Agatha Christie whodunit boasts an incredible international cast as some of the most wonderfully eccentric characters ever created. Ingrid Bergman won an Oscar for her slightly dim-witted, Bible-quoting Swedish missionary. Albert Finney is the dapper detective Hercule Poirot, for whom murder-solving is a precise, intellectual exercise. Poirot agrees to interview all aboard the famous train's Calais coach, hoping to find the killer of an American millionaire before the local police arrive. Packed with sparkling dialogue and visually rich in texture, this incomparable thriller received six Academy Award nominations.

The opening scenes of the train were shot with cars that were not operating. At the time the movie was shot, if I'm not mistaken, the train was not running and the cars were shot as they were sitting unused. The car where Poirot does his interrogating is the Lalique car, named that because of the priceless Lalique panels gracing its walls. The shots of the corridors with a stained glass window? Those were shot in the current kitchen/baggage car. Wonderful movie and a great bit of acting (and sometimes overacting).
You could watch this ten times over to watch the mastery of these actors. Fantastic film.
We knew the plot and the ending, but this version had things that the older did not. I liked it in some ways and pined for older times as well. I am so used to seeing Suchet play Poirot that I think it tainted my seeing this movie in its own light.
Still, we both enjoyed it and had fun finding out "whodunnit" again :)
