The movie’s Venetian setting is nothing short of breathtaking.

The elaborate canals, Gothic architecture, and eerie mist create a hauntingly beautiful setting that adds intrigue to the story. With its labyrinthine layout and rich history, Venice is the perfect canvas for a mystery of this magnitude. It feels like a character, enriching the overall atmosphere of suspense and mystique.

The plot of A Haunting in Venice is a rollercoaster of twists and turns, with me on the edge of my seat. As a devoted Agatha Christie fan, I was pleased to learn that this film adapts her novel “Hallowe’en Party.” Branagh’s meticulous attention to detail in the storytelling and superb writing ensure that the audience keeps guessing until the end. The puzzles and riddles are as engaging as ever, and the film masterfully builds tension as the mystery deepens.

Kenneth Branagh continues to shine as Hercule Poirot.

His charismatic and enigmatic portrayal of the famous detective captures the essence of Christie’s beloved character. Branagh’s Poirot is as sharp as ever, using his brilliant deductive skills to unravel the secrets surrounding mysterious events. Michelle Yeo delivers a stellar performance, adding depth and authenticity to her character. Her chemistry with Branagh’s Poirot is palpable, creating a dynamic and compelling duo that keeps the audience invested in their pursuit of the truth. Tina Fey, although reminiscent of her character in “Only Murders in the Building,” brings her unique charm to the film, delivering moments of humor and fun that balance the tension.


I give A Haunting in Venice 4 out of 5 stars. It is a must-watch for mysteries, thrillers, and Agatha Christie fans. Kenneth Branagh’s direction and performance as Hercule Poirot are a testament to his acting and filmmaking skills. The Venetian setting adds an enchanting yet eerie backdrop to the intricate plot, and the supporting cast, particularly Michelle Yeo and Tina Fey, deliver outstanding performances. A Haunting in Venice is the perfect choice if you’re in the mood for a captivating and suspenseful cinematic experience. Don’t miss a hauntingly good time. This film will leave you in awe of its beauty and mystery.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
