Murder on the Orient Express

murder on the orient express

Many years ago I read ‘Murder on the Orient Exress’, one of Agatha Christies finest novels with one of the worlds finest detectives. As you probably already guessed from the title, Hercule Poirot needs to solve a murder mystery on board of the Orient Express in this story.

Reasons to watch the movie

The actors. So many great actors in one movie. Kenneth Branagh puts down an adorable Hercule Poirot while Johnny Depp is the perfect criminal Ratchett. Add a lovely Penelope Cruz, an intriguing Willem Dafoe, a lovely Josh Gad and many more and you have all the ingredients for a tasty movie.

The story. Strangers on board of a train all become suspects when one of them gets murdered… How awesome is this murder mystery by Agatha Christie? Even when you already know the end, like me, it’s still fun to watch the story come to live on screen.

The train. This movie could as well be a travelling promo. The enchanting landscapes will have you running to the travel agency in no time. Or at least, that’s where I’m heading right now…

Counting stars


Maybe I should give the movie one star less, but I simply adore Agatha Christie and her famous detective. And I fell in love with the mythical train and it’s gorgeous destinations. So here we go!
