Sweet and comfortable
14 April 2002 | by Renaldo MatlinSee all my reviews

Very low-key tale with a wonderful performance by John Hurt in particular. Also a movie worth watching for model train-buffs as Hurt's character has one of the most beautiful train sets ever seen on film!

Shot on location in Leeds NIGHT TRAIN also confirmed something I've suspected for quite some time: all British cities really DO look the same!
