Review of “Brief Encounter”

Brief Encounter is a 1945 film about two people who meet, have strong feelings for one another, toy with the idea of taking their brief encounter to another level and then… I won’t tell you want happens.

My initial feelings were, “I’m not in the mood to watch some stiff British actors sit around a table with their cups of tea and say la-dee-da back and forth for an hour and a half” (the trailer gives that impression), but I’m glad I stuck it out. Over looking the film’s dated qualities is a small price to pay for a love story that rivals anything out of Casablanca. And what an ending!

  1. I’m not old enough to have seen this first-run, but I’ve watched it a couple of times and it’s a terrific flick.

    Another old movie you might like is “Witness for the Prosecution”.
