The film Death on the Nile, which was directed by John Guillermin in 1978, is based on one of Agatha Christie's most famous detective novels. Like so many other films, it starts with a typical love story. A young man leaves his girlfriend for his big love, but the abandoned woman wants to take revenge and kills the young lady. Of course, famous Beligian detective Hercule Poirot tries to convict her. Actually, that's what you think at first but at the end there's a surprising twist. Because of that, the film becomes thrilling and interesting.
I would recommend the film for every age, because although it is about crime and mystery, it isn't really scary. In addition to that, the flashbacks are quite easy to unterstand, because they are shown while the people are telling their stories. All in all, the film is still a very popular old-fashioned crime story - and that's not only because of the famous author and the all-star cast. (Johanna Lajmis, 5a)
