An all-star cast in a great story
Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Vanessa Redgrave, Sean Connery, Anthony Perkins and Michael York, to name a few, together in a movie. Director Sidney Lumet (from '12 Angry Men') has made a movie set in a train where all these great actors have the same amount of screen time, accept for Finney who is in almost every scene.

The movie is set on the Orient Express where a murder is committed. Hercule Poirot (Finney) is assigned to solve this murder mystery, written by Agatha Christie. Since the murder is committed on the train every passenger is a suspect and with interrogations from Poirot we are able to think with him. Some of the characters are real suspects, others seem very innocent. It is all very interesting and keeps you on the edge of your seat for a very long time.

It has an ending it deserves. Surprising for some, I guess, although there are enough clues on the way. It is part of the fun with this movie. It doesn't cheat in a single way, it shares all the known information and therefore we have the feeling we are detectives ourselves. A great story, a great director, great actors (especially Finney and Bergman are terrific), a great movie.
