Viewing Notes

Not quite as colorful as the most recent entries I’ve seen despite the exotic locale (they don’t really use Rio at all; this could’ve been set in any city). Most of the story takes place in a mansion after they leave a night club. Basically the dinner party murder mystery setup with a large cast and everyone’s a suspect. It’s fine.
