A bit weird. The Hoffman character was not believable. Husband Christie was odious... but well played. Period settings excellent. Electrical stuff complete nonsense.
Set in Victorian England this film is all about a marriage gone bad, Agatha's, but a new romance begun by Dustin with Redgrave as Agatha Christie.
Poignant, slow paced film shows how Agatha disappeared after a terrible argument with her husband (once Bond star) Tim Hutton. Dustin Hoffman as an American journalist visiting England is determined to find Agatha and falls in love with her. Turns out to be an ill fated love however and things get really interesting as Agatha plots her own suicide.
The movie didn't move me much until the last half when the action picks up to save Agatha from herself. The ending is poignant and a bit sad.
Between a 6/10 and 7/10, 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.
Good performances but missing a few things.
Why is this film not on DVD if it is so popular? It is a classic.
well crafted mystery/suspenser based on true events from 1926
Vanessa Redgrave was pretty dull and I lost interest in this movie.
Starring Dustin Hoffman and Vanessa Redgrave. Failed exercise in suspense supposes what mystery writer Agatha Christie might have done when she disappeared for eleven days in 1926. Redgrave is Ms. Christie, Hoffman an American journalist in London who tracks her down. The film is worthwhile for their unusual chemistry and for its cinematography, which creates the illusion that we are seeing this story through the mists of time. Future 007 actor Timothy Dalton doesn't leave much of an impression as Christie's husband. Directed by Michael Apted.
A slow fictional explanation of the mysterious disappearance of Christie. It put harrowgate on my list of places to visit though.
This movie looks great and Vanessa Redgrave is enchanting, but the story is so damn boring! It's never a good sign when you have to keep stopping the movie to surf the net instead.
