1.5 out of 10 Only for lovers of Golden Oldies
Derek from Dublin, 15 Feb 2011
It might have casued a stir in its day but this movie is dated and we found it hard to watch all of it. Skip it unless you love other movies from this era.

What's it about....
Noel Coward’s sensitive portrayal of what happens when two happily married strangers, played by Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson, meet and their acquaintance deepens into affection and eventually into love. It is the story of two people, thrown together by the chance meeting of the title, helpless in the face of their emotions but redeemed by their moral courage. Over the years few films have equalled the compassion and the realism of Brief Encounter.
