Poignant, well-acted tale of love and political intrigue, 18 April 2003
Author: Christine (cmf1261) from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Usa.

I rented this film because I wanted to see Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland act in tandem once more, almost two decades after their bravura performances in "Don't Look Now" They did not disappoint the second time around. The acting was superb, which is to be expected, but the story is also well-developed and especially in this post 9/11 climate,timely. Films such as this, which can deal with the larger themes of terrorism and political unrest while still being able to fully develop the more personal themes of love, loss and redemption among middle-aged lovers are rare; films that can do this well are rarer still. I highly recommend "The Railway Station Man." If only Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie were paired more often.......
