A Believable Falling in Love- Step by Step
2 December 2011 | by film_ophileSee all my reviews

It is not easy to find this film, so if you have a chance to see it, you are a very lucky person.

I think I saw it at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and, while it was almost 20 years ago, I have never forgotten it.It is simply a kind of hour by hour look at two people who meet on a train and, over a week or so on the train, fall in love. It is just completely authentic,unassuming,and very affecting.

I don't know why this film and director Poole went so little noticed and unrewarded; of the thousands of films i have seen, this one stays in my conscience.
