Everyone said that the ending of this version has been changed too much and succumbed to the romantic attributes of the big screen, but this film is also another version output by Agatha Christie as the screenwriter. Together with the original book, it alludes to the two aspects of the story. possible branches:

The original book is from God's perspective, an idealized and justified island trial mode - God makes decisions, and judges execute them on their behalf, but judges are also human beings and cannot commit murder in the name of justice without bearing the consequences. Played the executioner of justice (justice, but still the executioner, a man, not a god) and must be punished, but the executor is still himself;

The 1945 version is more realistic. Since the murderer (the judge) has appeared and taken the poison, why should the remaining two go to death? Now there is only a smooth road ahead for the murderer, and they choose to bury their crimes. Stay in the bottom of your heart and survive, just like those murderers who have not been caught in reality, this is the most real human nature.

"Never trust a woman," the judge said as he died. The female secretary once told the mercenary that she was wronged. Do the mercenaries believe the judge? We don't know, we only saw two people walking out of the building in the name of "love"...

But did they finally get out of the island? Only the old man who chewed bread knew the answer. And who is this old man?
