Perhaps the best TV-film I've ever seen!
8 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

I can't remember exactly when did I see the drama, maybe when I was in junior high school or so. To tell the truth, I was too young to understand the plot and it's meanings at the time, but, I was moved indeed! And I remembered the name "Caught on the train" when the movie was over. Since then I tried many times to find out more about it, it's incredible that I could remember a moive's name for so long, I never did so with other movies!!!
