Evil Under the Sun (1982)

vlcsnap-2017-11-26-01h12m19s709Souffle de Mer is the fictional perfume that can be seen in Arlena Stuart Marshall’s bedroom. Its bottle doesn’t remind me of any real product, but the name is appropriate, since the film is set at an exclusive Adriatic island resort.

As Allison pointed out in the comments, in the film the French name of the perfume is translated as Breath of the Sea, a poetic rendition of the literal translation Sea Air.

  1. In the film, it’s translated as “The Breath of the Sea.” I love to see you giving these wonderful old Poirot movies the treatment.

  2. Thanks for pointing that out. I had no memory of the exact translation in the film.

    I love them! I think Peter Ustinov is the perfect Poirot. My favourite is Death on the Nile ♥
