A curio item, an art film that wants to be commercial, this mild mystery (about Agatha Christie's disappearance) evoked expectations due to the high-caliber cast of tall Vanessa Redgrave and short Dustin Hoffman.

If Kathleen Tynan and the makers of "Agatha" had worked in that spirit -- had given us a droll and macabre black comedy -- the movie might have worked. They do not, and so it does not.

The film has moments of absolutely breathtaking beauty that more than make up for any dramatic shortcomings. Occasionally the imagery actually becomes the drama.
