    The cast is excellent, and while the script could've been tighter and more even (especially in regards to the past), Night Train to Lisbon is still very good arthouse fun. Full Review »

    This film is gripping, nicely-paced, and lovely to look at. The shift between the earlier years and the present is skillfully executed, the two sets of actors excellent. I admired and enjoyed every aspect of the telling of this story. Jeremy Irons made the professor's uncharacteristic actions believable. I loved this one. Full Review »

    Great film. It's an adventure on real life, an adult movie, in the sense teenagers will find nothing for them here, no boobs, no blood, no explosions. Very poetic with beautiful locations and historical insights into Portuguese dictatorship makes this an must watch if you're a mature, intelligent person. Full Review »
