The romance of the desert has the power to seduce

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Mark Lyndon, in70mm.com correspondent, and in charge of enough Champagne to fill the Nile Date: 06.03.2022

"The crime is murder. The murderer is one of you. I have investigated many crimes, but this has altered the shape of my soul. I am detective Hercule Poirot, and I will deliver your killer."

Thus spoke Hercule Poirot.

Never is the romance of the desert more seductive in the cinema than when it is filmed and projected in 70mm on the screen of the most prestigious cinema in the world, probably. Sixty years after "Lawrence of Arabia" received a Royal Première in 70mm at the
Odeon Leicester Square, comes "Death on the Nile" in 70mm.

That this format still reigns supreme as the cinematic monarch of all it surveys, the state of the art of the moving image, is demonstrated beyond a reasonable doubt, by Actor/Director Kenneth Brannagh, Haris Zambarloukos, Director of Photography and Michael Mannix and Gordon Elliot, the projection team at the Odeon Leicester Square.

Cinema can confidently hold its head up amongst all other visual media, with the power and the beauty of the images it reveals, on the big screen. With this masterpiece, Zambarloukos has joined the ranks of the greatest masters of Light and Composition - Freddie Young, Jack Cardiff, Stanley Kubrick, Vitorio Storaro and Seamus McGarvey.

Kenneth Brannagh has now starred in and presented three great 70mm masterpieces, in this the latest, he gives a tremendous bravura performance as the legendary detective Hercule Poirot. Well supported by a strong cast, principally Russell Brand, Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, this is ensemble playing of a high order.

The atmosphere of growing unease, as the imagery becomes more and more ravishingly beautiful, elevates
"Death on the Nile" into the front rank of the art of filmmaking. Enjoy the best, by those who have given their best, in 70mm, naturally.
