A majority of the actors in the film (both the main cast - like Kenneth Branagh and Derek Jacobi - and the bit players) are current and former members of the United Kingdom's foremost theatre companies: The Royal Shakespeare Company and The Royal National Theatre. Several of them have also appeared live broadcasts produced by these companies. See more »
As the train leaves Istanbul, a panorama of the city shows the Galata Tower, a cylindrical tower with a distinctive high conical roof; however, although built in by the Genoese in 1348, the roof was destroyed in 1875, and was not restored until renovations which took place in 1965-67. For the intervening period, including during the time-frame of the movie, the tower was flat topped. See more »
Diane and I viewed this beauty of a film this afternoon, and we both
thoroughly enjoyed a magical cinema event: I use these words because
the movie takes you out of your own reality and places you in another
world that is not macabre or dangerous but filled with beautiful
people, costumes and settings.
Perhaps the reader can tell that I love being removed from the
mundanity of our ordinary existence. This beautifully constructed film
filled with marvellous actors who are dressed in gorgeous timely
costumes and set to work in spectacular train compartments and asked to
use a perfect script will leave many cinema-goers anticipating more.
If I were much younger, I would not hunger for the movies from the
Directors Period in the 70s and 80s when they were allowed to make
Great Movies rather than only the money-men. In any event, see this
film for its sublime attractions painted by Kenneth Branagh.
