Storyline

A group is invited, under false pretenses, to an isolated hotel in the Iranian desert. After dinner, a cassette tape accuses them all of crimes that they have gotten away with. One by one they begin to die, in accordance to the Ten Little Indians nursery rhyme. After a search is made of the hotel, they realize that the murderer is one of them. A few members of the group attempt to trust each other, but the question still remains, who can one trust? And who will leave the hotel alive? Written by Nick Johansen

Excellent adaptation - it works!
10 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

OK, it's slow, it's typically "British" and a bit out of fashion, but this movie is really close to the novel and you cannot unlike it if you have loved the book. Besides, the performances of the actors are great and the end is one of the best I have ever seen.
