Brief Encounter (1974) Review


About half an hour into Brief Encounter, I began to wonder why it was acclaimed as a great film. Then I did a little research and discovered I was watching the wrong Brief Encounter. The 1946 version, directed by David Lean, that's the good one. This one, despite a promising cast of Richard Burton and Sophia Loren is made-for-TV crap. Based on Noel Coward's play (aka Still Life), we find Loren falling for a guy who picks some grit out of her eye at a train station. Will they shrug off society and hook up?

Who cares?
