Did You Know?


Since 2016, there had been speculation on the possibility that the television series would be made into a feature film. In May 2016, Essie Davis acknowledged interest in playing Miss Fisher in a film. "We're just working out the ideas of how to make it bigger and better and more fabulous than the TV show," she said. Later that year, it was revealed that plans were afoot to produce a trilogy of Phryne Fisher films. See more »

User Reviews

Stylish and exotic
26 February 2020 | by ross-547-585754See all my reviews

I had no expectations apart from having seen many of the excellent TV shows of the same character. This movie was a surprise. Instead of being firmly set in 1920's Melbourne, this movie had so many exotic locations and just one 'purportedly' shot in Melbourne. The story was a 'Boy's Own Adventure' - taken expertly by the stylish and confident Miss Fisher. The plot and dialogue at times were a little too contrived, but the net result was a satisfying romp through England,London and Palestine. The cinematography was excellent and made seeing the film on the big screen worthwhile. Visually it was a joy and production values were very high so all scenes, locales and events were a treat. The plot proceeded at a good pace and the audience was slowly led to the 'Indiana Jones' like intrigue. Gentle humour and soft farce meant that the film didn't take itself too seriously. A good job all round, with good performances from the whole cast. I'm glad I got a chance to see it in the cinema.
