Kenneth Branagh is an unconditional fan of Agatha ChristieThat has become quite clear to us. After releasing ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ and ‘Death on the Nile’, the Irishman is preparing ‘A Haunting in Venice’, a new film adaptation of the British author’s mysteries.
On this occasion, we will move to the canals of Venice where, rocked by his gondolas, Hercule Poirot will face a new murder that he will have to solve. But, What book originated this movie? If you are a staunch follower of suspense literature, this is the first thing you will have thought of. There is no work in the Christie collection that is so titled. In fact, unlike the two previous films, in this case Branagh has allowed himself some creative licence.
‘A Haunting in Venice’ was born as a result of the novel ‘The Apples’, whose original title is ‘Hallowe’en Party’. Many will already know where the shots go, but What can those more foreign to Christie’s creations expect from this new film? What mysteries will be hidden in the new Branagh release?
Next, we tell you everything we know about ‘A Haunting in Venice’, the new film adaptation of Agatha Christie:
‘A Haunting in Venice’: Synopsis
Framed by a post-war Europe (World War II has recently ceased), we meet once again with the mythical detective, Hercule Poirot (Branagh). On this occasion, after having retired to spend a pleasant retirement on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Poirot comes across a new mystery to solve. Going (without much enthusiasm) to a seance in one of the city’s palaces, he witnesses the murder of another of the individuals gathered there.
This will begin your investigation, which will follow a similar structure to its predecessors.
In the original novel, far away is Venice and all its charismatic landscape. ‘Las Manzanas’ follows the resolution of a murder that occurred at a children’s Halloween party. Over there, oran imaginative teenager confesses to having witnessed a crime. Due to her habitual tendency to make up fictional scenarios, no one believes her. Moments later, she appears drowned in a basin of water and apples.
One of the assistants, suspecting that the young woman could have told the truth, goes to Christie’s detective to solve the mystery.
