    "Central Station" is a masterpiece where Walter Salles joins his great talent as a director perfectly to the excellent script and cast powerful. Film ensures Fernanda Montenegro the title of one of the best performances of world cinema.

    Outra obra magnífica do cinema brasileiro, uma road movie simplesmente comovente e feito com alta qualidade de seus produtores, com certeza um dos melhor filmes estrangeiros de todos os tempos.

    Profoundly affecting.
  2. But in a calculated move that pays off handsomely, the picture's remarkable power is reserved for the end, when the intertwining themes coalesce in an extraordinarily satisfying and stirring way.

    The movie's success rests largely on the shoulders of Fernanda Montenegro, an actress who successfully defeats any temptation to allow sentimentality to wreck her relationship with the child.
