DIRECTOR: DAVID LEAN

CAST: CELIA JOHNSON, TREVOR HOWARD, STANLEY HOLLOWAY, JOYCE CAREY

Lean’s simple, tender, and terribly emotionally direct film, featuring never-better Noël Coward dialogue and a Rachmaninoff theme that grows insuperably sad with repetition, follows an affair between a middle-class couple (Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard) who happen to be inconveniently married to other people, their mutual love and mutual agony increasing over the course of seven meetings and departures that begin with a chance in a railway station buffet. One of the great screen romances, full stop.
