"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
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
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.
