Excellent movie for romantic fools!
21 August 1999 | by (Holland) – See all my reviews

Call me a romantic fool. But when I first did see this movie I cried. Years later there was this re-run on tv so I taped it. Now I could see this wonderful movie whenever I wanted. And now I am 29 I still cry seeing Romance On The Orient express. Wanna know why? Everything is excellent in this movie: the actors, the setting and of course the story. Its about a boy and girl who fall in love in France and they love each other so much they never will part. But of course they do and when they meet up ten years later you can feel the sorrow and the pain of ten lost years. Like I said, I am a romatic fool and now I am in love for 14 months I probably gonna see this movie with my girlfriend soon. So we can say we never will part. And if we do, we meet up in Paris ten years from now. Like the characters in this film
