Directed by David Lean | 1945

With Celia Johnson, Trevor Howard, Stanley Holloway

“Sheer perfection—the gold standard of tragic romances whose influence can still be seen to this day.”
—Time Out New York

Belying his reputation as an uncompromising ascetic, Bresson counted David Lean’s intoxicatingly romantic tearjerker among his favorite films. Like the French master’s work, it’s uncommonly attuned to the quiet moments and rituals of everyday life. In a railway station café, a housewife (Johnson) and married doctor (Howard) carry out a secret, seemingly impossible love affair, borne along by the strains of the lush Rachmaninoff score.
