Synopsis:
It has been two years since the sensation caused by her eleven-day disappearance and Agatha (Lyndsey Marshal) is contemplating giving up detective novels to pursue a serious literary career. Seeking escape and inspiration, she travels to Baghdad on an archaeological tour. What she finds is turmoil: the world's biggest oil field has just been discovered and Iraq's ancient treasures are under threat. Agatha also finds a charming, naive young archaeologist, Max (Jonah Hauer-King), who needs her help as a series of murders unfold in the faded grandeur of the villa where they are staying.

The start of a 46 year attachment - Agatha and the Curse of Ishtar review by AA

Spoiler Alert

Interesting bio pic of how Agatha Christie and Max Mallowan meet in Iraq and the ensuing events that led to their marriage!  How much is truth or speculation one cannot say, but the script did contain both pathos and humour and mirrored events in Iraq at the time.

Unenthusiastic Review of a favourite genre... - Agatha and the Curse of Ishtar review by PM

Spoiler Alert
28/09/2020

I suspected this was going to be more 'TV' than 'Big Screen' and was unfortunately right. Not terrible - just a bit drab and non-committal - and definitely not as well told or timed as well as Hickson's Marple or Ustinov's Poirot. It's okay if you're watching it doing something else at the same time - on a wet afternoon - don't be afraid to pause it for a couple of tea breaks.. not a good sign when you don't care who did it..

Most interesting aspect was the character assumptions about Agatha herself and her take on people in general -  dismissive.

Give It A Miss - Agatha and the Curse of Ishtar review by NM

Terrible film - openly misandrous - the female characters always know better than the men. I gave up after 30mins.
