  • Critic Reviews of "Brief Encounter"

    Time Out
    November 02, 2015

    One of the most vivid, impassioned and painfully believable love stories ever committed to celluloid.

    Time Out
    October 09, 2012

    Sheer perfection-the gold standard of tragic romances whose influence can still be seen to this day.

    November 06, 2007

    Cyril Raymond manages to invest the stodgy character with a lovable quality.

    Chicago Reader
    November 06, 2007

    Rarely rises above the level of the old women's magazines.

    Some films don't age well, and no doubt Brief Encounter had more of an emotional effect in the social climate of post-war Britain.

    New York Times
    May 20, 2003

    An uncommonly good little picture -- and one which is frankly designed to appeal to that group of film-goers who are provoked by the 'usual movie tripe.'
    May 31, 2016

    Brief Encounter makes an illicit love affair more than that, giving the doomed romance more of a soul than a thousand tragic romances since then.

    Little White Lies
    November 09, 2015

    Romance and goodness are evoked with equal power and from these conflicting impulses, voluptuous demons spring eternal.

    Radio Times
    November 05, 2015

    The leads are outstanding, but credit should also go to the forgotten Cyril Raymond, whose decent dullness as Johnson's husband makes those stolen Thursdays seem so special.

    Times (UK)
    November 05, 2015

    One of cinema's classic love stories.

    Observer (UK)
    November 03, 2015

    Noël Coward's Brief Encounter is, to my mind, not only the most mature work Mr Coward has yet prepared for the cinema, but one of the most emotionally honest and deeply satisfactory films that have ever been made in this country.

    Turner Classic Movies Online
    May 04, 2012

    ... still embraced as one of the most romantic films ever made, and it has earned its reputation.
