Vi la de los 70, de Sidney Lumet, con un magnífico Albert Finney en el papel de Poirot. Me gustó lo suyo. Branagh es de los que da una de cal y otra de arena :-/ . Espero que con pase con esta como copn su versión de "La huella".

--The New York Journal of Books said: «Forty Days Without Shadow is more than a splendidly told murder investigation and its consequences. It is a fascinating telling of bloody history, culture, and indigenous people struggling against all odds to survive. The winter scenes are frighteningly real, at times leaving you breathless and filled with awe.»--

Sing a song of sixpence,
    A pocket full of rye.
    Four and twenty blackbirds,
    Baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened,
    The birds began to sing;
    Wasn't that a dainty dish,
    To set before the king?

The king was in his counting house,
    Counting out his money;
    The queen was in the parlour,
    Eating bread and honey.

The maid was in the garden,
    Hanging out the clothes,
    When down came a blackbird
    And pecked off her nose.
