Death on the Nile

Kenneth Branagh’s latest Agatha Christie mystery remake is “Death on the Nile”. It has an all star cast and of course each character has a motive for murder. The film is slick, beautifully filmed and well acted, but a bit slow. It’s the type of movie you watch at home. An interesting prologue shows how Hercule Peroit became the person he is. For me, the stand out was Sophie Okonedo as a jazz singer. A bonus was the jazzy musical numbers. See if you can figure it out. Not great, but enjoyable.
