- Brief Encounter review by CP Customer
What a delight! I really didn't expect to laugh so much - all the 'working class' characters had razor-sharp humour through their dialogue. The lead parts highlighted the innocence of the age, the passion was a simmering undercurrent.. Even so I found there was a realism which is often lacking in modern cinema - for example the actors' teeth were as nature intended, not white and straight! As a snapshot of the constraints of middle-class post-war life, I found it fascinating.
