Rather Bland But Pleasant Feature
20 August 2004 | by Snow LeopardSee all my reviews

This rather bland but pleasant feature follows the experiences of an engaged couple who, for reasons good and sufficient to them, prefer to conduct their courting on a train. There are a number of light gags, and the atmosphere is an agreeable one, but it doesn't really have all that much to it aside from the basic idea.

It's interesting to notice how many of the earliest films involved trains. Several of the best-known films from the first decade or so of cinema revolved around trains, and so did many of the lesser-known movies. This is one of them for which the train itself is pretty much the main focus, since everything that follows is really only of interest due to the setting.
