So, about the film, or rather mini-series, filmed by Sergei Ursulyak. It adaptation of Agatha Christie's novel "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd", which at one time very well received by readers and very bad – criticism. You have not read it? Well, then I will not explain what caused the dissatisfaction of respectable Gentlemen, smashed the plot and narrative style, otherwise it will be interesting to read a book or watch "Failure Poirot." Story by, the question was made very close to the text, carefully observed all the intrigue and plot turns. Lynn Redgrave is often mentioned in discussions such as these. Suspected, as usual, including a butler, until the very end of the film multiseries viewer at a loss: well, who, who killed Roger Ackroyd? And you know, this film – great example of that serial format sometimes necessary for a complete immersion in a book and a maximum of detail. There is no feeling of tightness of artificial narrative, and scenes from everyday life heroes are important for understanding their nature and creating the right atmosphere.
I do not know whom to thank for it in the first place, the director or the actors who played great – probably both. But about them a little later, and now, very briefly, to something not inadvertently blabbed about the plot. In the sleepy English village of King's Abbot, where nothing ever happens, happens almost in a row two terrible events. At first, driving his own life recently became a widow, Mrs. Ferrars, and soon at more than a body found in mysterious circumstances Roger Ackroyd.
