"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"
Witness For Prosecution (1957) - (Movies To See Before You Die - Court Room Drama)
03 Aug, 2008 | Movies To See Before You Die / Court Room

Out of the few movies based on mystery novels by Agatha Christie, this can be rated as the finest attempt by the director Billy Wilder.  Her brainstorming novel gets transformed into an equally thrilling and entertaining movie. A black & white classic, which will totally shake your grey cells, with its mind boggling climax and the real game behind the whole strategy.

It’s an exciting court room drama involving a husband and wife, where the suspicion keeps shifting like a pendulum towards many characters. And the last few minutes of the movie force you to sit back and think about the whole movie from the start itself in your mind. It is a brilliantly written and well conceived mystery with many unexpected & sharp twists towards the end.
The best role is of the lawyer who gets caught in the well planned game and finds himself in a strange position in the end. The movie made me a fan of Agatha Christie’s writings and I went on to read more of her novels after this. A must watch for lovers of crime and court room dramas. I rate it as one of the top 5 best court room movies made all over the world till date.
