I headed over to the shopping centre to meet TY. We were going to go to the cinema to see Kenneth Branagh’s new film of Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express”. There were some nice looking Tesla cars on display in the shopping centre.
My first trip to the cinema in China!
Another happy evening.
I can’t remember for long I have waited to see this film.
I have always struggled with this book. Was it right or wrong? Was it justice or vengeance?
This film version doesn’t even seem to ask these questions.
Maybe my friend has more insight than I do: “I think I am glad to think that this situation would not happen in real life. Because if it happens one time, it would be used by others next time” and, “We should not be controlled by hate.”
But, like I said, probably best not to think it through too much.
I just love the reference to this story from a later Poirot book, Cards on the Table: “A knife, mademoiselle, with which twelve people once stabbed a man.”
