A Haunting in Venice12A

Directed by Kenneth Branagh | UK/USA | 2023 | 1h 43m | Starring Kenneth Branagh, Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Dornan, Tina Fey, Kelly Reilly

In post-World War II Europe, the recently retired sleuth Hercule Poirot has settled into a life of self-imposed exile in Venice. With some reluctance, he attends a seance at a decaying palazzo, where one of the guests meets a tragic end and thrusts Poirot back into the role of detective. Kenneth Branagh reprises his role as the moustachioed master of mystery in this gothic, all-star whodunit, based on Agatha Christie’s novel ‘Hallowe’en Party.’


‘A Haunting in Venice knows exactly what it’s doing. More Christie, played by A-listers having fun in a cosy-as-a-cushion, teatime ITV-drama-on-the-big-screen way — catering for a cinema audience left behind by superheroes.’
Jonathan Dean, The Times”

‘Branagh seems confident in how much you can please a crowd simply with committed performances and high-end smoke and mirrors: an enduring truth for both a movie and a medium.’
Danny Leigh, The FT
