Leonard Maltin Ratings & Review
LEONARD MALTIN MOVIE RATING






4 out of 4 Stars
LEONARD MALTIN MOVIE REVIEW:
D: David Lean. Celia Johnson, Trevor Howard, Stanley Holloway, Cyril Raymond, Joyce Carey. Two ordinary strangers, both married, meet at a train station and find themselves drawn into a short but poignant romance. Intense and unforgettable, underscored by perfect use of Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto. Adapted by Noel Coward from his one-act play "Still Life" (from Tonight at Eight-thirty); screenplay by director Lean and Ronald Neame. A truly wonderful film. Remade as a TV movie in 1974 with Richard Burton and Sophia Loren.
