A Haunting in Venice(2023)Movie Review:Brilliantly executed !


“A Haunting in Venice” is a fantastic adaptation of Halloween Party, much like how Captain America: First Avenger relates to a WWII biopic. However, this film stands out in its own delightful way. Personally, I absolutely loved it. It took the traditional structure of a whodunit, which isn’t usually my cup of tea, and elevated it with stunning cinematography and immersive sound, creating a mysterious and chilling atmosphere. The acting was top-notch, breathing life into characters that would typically be one-dimensional. The writing was excellent, featuring a well-crafted story structure, intriguing and eccentric yet believable characters, and memorable dialogue.

The movie is set in post-World War II Venice on All Hallows’ Eve, and it follows the renowned detective Hercule Poirot as he reluctantly attends a séance at a decaying, haunted palazzo. When one of the guests is murdered, Poirot finds himself thrust into a sinister world of shadows and secrets.

The entire cast delivered strong performances, especially Kelly Reilly, who is no stranger to Agatha Christie and shines as Rowena. The young actor portraying Leopold was also outstanding.

If you enjoy films with plenty of twists and turns, I highly recommend watching this movie. It’s truly one of the best I’ve seen in a while, and it makes me long to revisit Venice. The breathtaking scenery adds to the overall experience. Sit back and enjoy a fantastic story. If you’re a fan of Agatha Christie’s stories, Hercule Poirot, or appreciate an elegant approach to supernatural occurrences, this movie is perfect for you.
