A stunning new adaptation of the classic 1930s thriller that sees a beautiful, spoilt young woman risking her life to solve the mysterious disappearance of her travelling companion. Iris Carr (Tuppence Middleton) is travelling across Europe by train when she unwittingly becomes embroiled in a sinister Balkan plot. Feeling disorientated after a fall, Iris is befriended by Miss Froy (Selina Cadell), an elderly English woman sharing her carriage.

As fellow passengers claim the lady never existed, Iris faces danger and intrigue as she fights to discover the fate of Miss Froy - and prove that she's not going mad.

Atrocious, but it looks good - The Lady Vanishes review by AB

Spoiler Alert

How anybody could have thought that they could completely reinvent a hitchcock movie without trashing it is beyond me. But here they manage it absolutely - all the suspense and drama of the original 1938 version is mercilessly expunged, leaving nothing but soap-like whining , tantrums and cardboard characters. Really, really bad. So do yourself a favour and rent the real thing - Hitch's 1938 classic is one of the best mystery movies ever made.

The lady does vanish - The Lady Vanishes review by AW

Spoiler Alert

There's a prominent trend in remakes of old Classics. Sometimes they work but too often the original still stands up as the definitive version. However although theres a lot of slating of this film going on in reviews, I didn't really find this that bad, as it stood. Interestingly filmed in Hungary.

I've watched the 1938 version but it doesn't stand out in my mind. This one managed to hold my attention & the mysterious, secretive characters were...mysterious and secretive.

Tuppence M was a bit OTT in the hysteria stakes, granted, and the others a bit dismissive of her claims that Miss Froy existed, but hey, everyone had reasons not to delay the train's arrival in Trieste. Gemma Jones and Stephanie Cole were fun flower loving sisters for light relief. I liked Selina Cadell's assured Miss Froy. Dane Jesper Christensen was a slimy doctor I would not have touched with a barge pole! Nowhere near the complete pig's ear Kenneth Branagh made of the recent Murder on the Orient Express remake.
