Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: After barely stirring to life, "Night Train to Lisbon" mercifully expires.
Fresh: August's vision of the world, archaic though it may willingly be, is appealingly urbane ...
Rotten: "Murder on the Orient Express," this ain't.
Fresh: I think somewhere along the line this is one of those films that you are just going to embrace or step back from and I embraced it.
Slow moving on purpose. A time of revolution we hopefully will never understand for a people who's history made our present worthwhile.
Films about "inner life" are difficult to do well, but with fine, nuanced performances from a veteran, all star cast, director Bille August seems to have pulled it off. Excellent cinematography, and amazing Lisbon as a backdrop complete the package. This is one the critics got wrong. Sometimes they really don't get it, they only think they do.
A true film, Cinema as an art form...
Finally a good film a mixture between reading a novel and watching a film. With depth and fantastic acting in a lovely setting in Lisbon Portugal. Had to be a German production (Hamburg and Munich) of course, such art doesn't come from cheap Hollywood. Take your time and watch what fine movie making is all about.
