5.0 out of 5 stars A MONUMENT ,A MASTERPIECE,A CELEBRATION, 20 Nov 2013
This review is from: Agatha Christie's Poirot - The Definitive Collection (Series 1-13) [DVD] (DVD)
THe definitive collection of the most beautiful TV series ever seen.David Suchet is a colossal Poirot,a wonderful method actor giving complete life and body to his character,with impressive dedition to his art and his work.And the cast of merry helpers,gruff Philip Jackson,Jeevesesque David Yelland,adoring Pauline Moran,scatter-brained Zoe Wanamaker and above all,divinely candid Hugh Fraser,add infinite joy to the many repeated viewing of wicked murders and daring thefts always solved with unmatched skill by our favorite Belgian 'tec.The last season offer to us a brooding Poirot on the threshold of death but still having the time to investigate some of the better mysteries of his career.A double suicide on a cliff, a murderous garden fete where nobody and nothing is what it seems,a crazy conspiracy creating panic in London and all over the world,a dangerous lunatic killing the guests of a snowbound swiss hotel,and a twisted serial killer targeting even Poirot and Hastings among his many victims are the treats offered by the final season.Directing ,music,acting,scene dressing,everything is absolutely peerless.And the final death of Poirot is the poignant,dramatic end to a formidable interpretation.I don't think that any other fictional character would have been portrayed with such a skill and with such a massive array of masterpieces.Watch Sad Cypress,Five Little Pigs,The Hollow,After the funeral and the final cases of Poirot and you will find some very attracting pieces of the british art of film-making.With no pomp,no desire to put themselves on the pedestal,no festival-award winning smoke and mirrors.Only art,just art,wonderfully understated!
