Glamorous lady detective Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis) returns in a cinematic sequel to the wildly popular television series 'Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries'. With her trademark wit, impeccable style, and trusty pearl-handled revolver, Phryne fights injustice on an international scale in this globe-trotting adventure. In 1929 Jerusalem, Phryne rescues a young Bedouin girl held captive after a village massacre and reunites her with her uncle at a stately English manor. But then a man claiming to have information for the girl is shot, leaving behind a mysterious pendant. Vowing to find the truth, Phryne enlists the help of handsome detective Jack Robinson (Nathan Page) to uncover priceless treasures, wartime secrets, and an ancient tomb bearing a terrible curse.
- Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears review by SG
Having watched the TV series I knew not to interrogate the story too closely but to just let the whole joyous thing wash over me! It looks fabulous - the settings and the costumes are sumptuous. The trademark humour is there too and some lovely performances, particularly from Essie Davies and Nathan Page.
