The rest of the cast was a cohesive group of heavyweights from Ingrid Bergman to Vanessa Redgrave, from Sean Connery to John Gielgud it also had a period reconstruction in scrumptious detail, wit, elegance and an infectious score.
None of it is present in this new incarnation. No, the new version reeks of thoughtlessness and CGI. The actors seem to have been invited, not to play characters, but to watch Kenneth Brannagh act.

Laughter on the Orient Express. The eastern terminus was the Sirkeci Terminal by the Golden Horn. They resumed at the end of hostilities in , and in the opening of the Simplon Tunnel allowed the introduction of a more southerly route via Milan , Venice , and Trieste.
The service on this route was known as the Simplon Orient Express, and it ran in addition to continuing services on the old route.
The Treaty of Saint-Germain contained a clause requiring Austria to accept this train: The s saw the Orient Express services at its most popular, with three parallel services running: During this time, the Orient Express acquired its reputation for comfort and luxury, carrying sleeping-cars with permanent service and restaurant cars known for the quality of their cuisine.
Royalty , nobles , diplomats , business people , and the bourgeoisie in general patronized it. Each of the Orient Express services also incorporated sleeping cars which had run from Calais to Paris, thus extending the service right from one edge of continental Europe to the other.
The start of the Second World War in again interrupted the service, which did not resume until During the war, the German Mitropa company had run some services on the route through the Balkans ,  but Yugoslav Partisans frequently sabotaged the track, forcing a stop to this service.
Following the end of the war, normal services resumed except on the Athens leg, where the closure of the border between Yugoslavia and Greece prevented services from running.
That border re-opened in , but the closure of the Bulgarian — Turkish border from to prevented services running to Istanbul during that time.
As the Iron Curtain fell across Europe, the service continued to run, but the Communist nations increasingly replaced the Wagon-Lits cars with carriages run by their own railway services.
This was replaced in by a slower service called the Direct Orient Express, which ran daily cars from Paris to Belgrade, and twice weekly services from Paris to Istanbul and Athens.
In , the Wagon-Lits company stopped running carriages itself and making revenues from a ticket supplement. Instead, it sold or leased all its carriages to the various national railway companies, but continued to provide staff for the carriages.
The withdrawal of the Direct Orient Express was thought by many to signal the end of Orient Express as a whole, but in fact a service under this name continued to run from Paris to Bucharest as before via Strasbourg, Munich, and Budapest.
However, a through sleeping car from Paris to Bucharest — and even eastwards from Vienna — was only operated until , and also a through seating car was only operated seasonally.
This meant, that Paris—Budapest and Vienna—Bucharest coaches were running overlapped, so a journey was only possible with changing carriages — despite the unchanged name and numbering of the train.
In the Budapest-Bucharest leg of the train was canceled, the new final station has become Budapest. In the summer season of and a sleeping car from Bucharest to Paris reappeared twice a week — now operated by CFR.
This continued until , when the service was cut back to just Paris— Vienna , already in EuroNight quality — but in both cases the coaches were in fact rather attached to a Paris— Strasbourg express.
This service continued daily, listed in the timetables under the name Orient Express , until June 8, In the last years through coaches between Vienna and Karlsruhe continuing first to Dortmund , then to Amsterdam , and finally — partly from Budapest — to Frankfurt were attached.
The very last train with the name Orient-Express now with a hyphen has departed from Vienna at the 10th December , and one day later from Strasbourg.
Though the final service ran only from Strasbourg to Vienna , it was possible to retrace the entire original Orient Express route with four trains: Other routes from Paris to Istanbul exist even today, such as Paris— Munich — Budapest — Bucharest —Istanbul, or Paris—Zürich—Belgrade—Istanbul, all of which have comparable travel times of approximately 60 hours without delays.
Train services across the border to Turkey were stopped through several years due to construction works, but they were reintroduced in June , however, ending in Istanbul's suburb Halkali , from where a transfer bus is provided to the city centre.
The luxurious dining car, where scenes for Murder on the Orient Express and other movies were filmed, is now in the OSE museum of Thessalonica.
The local authorities plan to refit the train to make it available for tourist use around the Balkans in the near future. In the th anniversary of the Orient-Express was celebrated by a trip of this train from Paris to Istanbul, and in it was run to Hong Kong via the Soviet Union and China.
From there it was transferred by ferry to Japan , and used there for some excursions after regauging.
After the failure of the American European Express see below Intraflug became bankrupt, and the carriages were taken over by the Reisebüro Mittelthurgau.
The sleeping cars and some other coaches Pullmans, dining cars, luggage vans were transferred to Russia and used between Moscow and the Mongolian-Chinese border.
The remaining vehicles were used in Germany and Switzerland as diner trains until the company's bankruptcy. Since then the trains have been standing unused in different countries, as the new owners sort out problems with operations due to a lawsuit about the usage rights of the name Orient Express.
In , the Venice-Simplon Orient Express was established as a private venture, running restored s and s carriages from London to Venice.
Two or three times a year Prague or Vienna and Budapest are also accessed, starting from Venice, and returning to Paris and London. Every September the train also goes from London and Paris to Istanbul via Budapest , Sinaia , and Bucharest —in the last three cities a sightseeing and in the two capitals an overnight in hotel also takes place—the return trip on the same route ends up in Venice.
While the above-mentioned routes are available almost every year, some seasons have also included unique destinations, among them Cologne , Rome , Florence , Lucerne , the High Tatras , Cracow , Dresden , Copenhagen , and Stockholm.
Such a journey is provided currently to Berlin. The company also offers a similarly themed luxury train in Singapore , Malaysia , and Thailand called the Eastern and Oriental Express , and operates other luxury overnight trains in Scotland , Ireland , and Peru.
This train has only Pullman and dining cars, but no sleepers. It's used for gourmet trips in France.
