    La Bête Humaine

    ★★½

    In this classic adaptation of Emile Zola's novel, a tortured train engineer falls in love with a troubled married woman who has helped her husband commit a murder.

    Second time watch of The Station Agent and I loved it as much as first time round. It's one of those films that even though not a lot happens it's great just to spend time with these characters in this setting. Peter…
