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: A melancholy film with a big, soft heart
Slow moving on purpose. A time of revolution we hopefully will never understand for a people who's history made our present worthwhile.
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.
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.
