Movie Info

An Italian-French-Spanish version of the much-filmed Agatha Christie story, this film is strangely set in Iran, not Great Britain. Ten guests are invited to a remote desert inn and informed that the mysterious host has described in a nursery rhyme how they will all die during the gathering. One by one, the characters, played by such Continental stars such as Elke Sommer and singer Charles Aznavour as well as Britons Oliver Reed and Richard Attenborough, dwindle in number, each in accordance with a verse of the nursery rhyme, until only a few remain. The final characters then plot to ensnare the criminal mastermind behind the weekend of mayhem. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi

Great filmmaking? Hardly! Good fun? Yes!

There is no doubt this is kitschy... still, at least the book is treated seriously, some of Collinson's framing is memorable and the central 'who's-doing-it' conundrum holds firm.

Audience Reviews for Ein unbekannter rechnet ab (Ten Little Indians)(And Then There Were None)

Weak execution, the direction is flat and poor acting by the famous cast; they simply didn't show fear or desperation and the little showed was not convincing THOUGH, Christie fans (like me) will enjoy trying to crack her complex puzzle because this Agatha's story is one of her very best and draws the viewer in despite the film's technical problems.

One of the best Agatha Christie films to be made! Featuring an all star cast this is a timeless classic that has inspired many other films, Identity and House on Haunted hill spring to mind. If you like a good murder mystery or are a fan of Agatha Christie check this out, now known in the UK as And then there were none.
