Railway Station for Two: Best Classic of Soviet Love!! Keep a copy!
9 April 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I keep this movie on the top of my favorite Soviet movies. Typical Russian dark humor and sharply piercing plots, right into heart of human love.

No other director has done so well in the balancing popularity and literary art. The beauty is plain, but keeps coming back to your memory.

I grow up in China but and this title is imprinted into my memory of the wandering time, a seemingly peaceful time, with undercurrent of our human fates in the vast system, and hence the life without a border.

Centrel Russia ( west Siberia) has never been so vivid, and never be so warm. It requires some traveling in the vast inland to fully understand the beauty.
