After a breakup with her lover, Catherine decides to leave Montreal. With her young daughter, she takes the train to Vancouver. The long journey gives her time to think things over... and to form a relationship on the rebound. Vincent is also going to Vancouver, planning to meet his girlfriend there, but he and Catherine find themselves increasingly attracted to each other. (And meanwhile, someone on board is stealing things and leaving them with other people's things.) Written by
It is not easy to find this film, so if you have a chance to see it, you are a very lucky person.
I think I saw it at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and, while it was almost 20 years ago, I have never forgotten it.It is simply a kind of hour by hour look at two people who meet on a train and, over a week or so on the train, fall in love. It is just completely authentic,unassuming,and very affecting.
I don't know why this film and director Poole went so little noticed and unrewarded; of the thousands of films i have seen, this one stays in my conscience.
