Storyline

A man released from jail, where he had served time for doctoring the books of a gangster, has to go into hiding from the gangster's men. He moves into a Dublin boarding house run by a woman and her timid daughter. The timid woman immediately takes a shine to the new boarder and to his train sets, which they each use as an escape from reality. However, her mother doesn't like their relationship and they both are chased by the gangsters. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

A wonderful film
11 July 2000 | by (Leicester, England) – See all my reviews

This film should have had wider distribution - I was lucky enough to see it at a festival two years after it was made, and I'd never heard of it before.

It's gentle, funny, tense - in fact there are some quite scary moments in it - well-acted, with shrewd observation of ordinary lives and relationships, and a believable plot.

I can't think of anyone I wouldn't recommend this to.
