Brief Encounter

Here we have another amazing film based on the work of Noel Coward and in this case it earned the late great David Lean his first two Oscar nominations. Celia Johnson and Tevor Howard throw off literal sparks as the strangers who meet at the train station for the titled brief encounter and the reults a film making perfection. Serious. I often wonder if such a film could be made like this today as BRIEF ENCOUNTER set so many standards. Much has been written about this film from the directing to the acting and even the choice of music so I need not go on other than say this one is a must see.
