    Brief Encounter

    ★★★★★

    I stared out of that railway carriage window into the dark and watched the dim trees and the telegraph posts slipping by. And through them, I saw Alec and me. Alec and me, perhaps a little younger than we are now but just as much in love and with nothing in the way. I saw us in Paris, in a box at the opera. The orchestra was tuning up.

    There aren’t many movies that make me reflect on my life, at least not to a big extent. This movie is one of these very few that felt very personal and spoke to me in so many ways, I can’t quite wrap my head around it.
