So, about the film, or rather mini-series, filmed by Sergei Ursulyak. This adaptation of Agatha Christie's The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, who in his time very well received by readers and very bad – criticism. You have not read it? Well, then I will not explain what caused discontent respectable Gentlemen, smash the plot and style of the narrative, otherwise it will be interesting to read a book or watch a "failure" Poirot ". Screen adaptation, the question was done very close to the text, carefully observed all the intrigue and plot turns. Suspected, as usual, everything, including a butler, until the end of multiseries the film, at a loss: well, who, who killed Roger Ackroyd? And you know, this film – a wonderful example of what the serial format sometimes necessary for more complete immersion in a book and a maximum of detail. There is no sense of artificial lengthy narrative, and scenes from everyday life heroes are important for understanding their nature and creating the right atmosphere. I do not know whom to thank for it in the first place, the director or the actors who played great – probably all together. But about them a little later, and now, very briefly, to something inadvertently not permission or excuse, for the plot.
