Sean Axmaker Seanax.com This colorful adaptation plays like a big-budget version of the murder mysteries of the British small screen, no more cinematic but more lavish... Aug 11, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

thomas a "L'Heure Zéro" has all the intricacies of a decent French film...sans the romance. The twist of the story that comes at the end is still the work of the famed author Agatha Christie...hence, there is a tale of manipulation to be learned. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Loufoque, parfois un peu confus, surtout dans l'exposition, mais toujours charmant. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a confused film that never quite decides if it wants to be a country house mystery or a slapstick comedy and falls inevitably between the two failing at both. If you want an Agatha Christie thriller for a wet Sunday's viewing, there are much better and many of them off the TV itself. Nevertheless there are a few redeeming features... no, wait... that's a red herring. ;-) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member A French Agatha Christie with a slow start & unlikeable characters, but Francois Morel as the Detective superintendent made up for it. With beautiful French scenery & Chiara Mastroianni (she looks so much like her dad.) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member It is interesting but nothing more. It lacks a special touch and almost never grows bigger than a typical mystery film. Good but unremarkable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Un autre Agatha Christie de Pascal Thomas, sans Frot et Dussolier, mais toujours aussi bien mene. Ageable et bien joue.
