A brief encounter between a small-town mother and a married doctor becomes a passionate and desperate affair. Brief Encounter is considered by many as one of the greatest British films and one of the most romantic films ever made. The realistic work draws from a Noël Coward script, is shot in authentic locations, and chiefly proves what an incredible and masterful director David Lean is. Lean creates the atmosphere with smoke from trains, rainy screens, and trench coats; all charge this delicate romance with emotion and warmth. Brief Encounter is a gorgeous work that captures the British spirit in all its glory: restraint, tradition, romance, and loyalty.
