What gives the film its strength is that cutting away the first layer only reveals more levels of toughness; it takes time to discover the pure soul beneath.

Road movies are a cinematic convention, but rarely do they connect like this wonderful Brazilian film.

[D]espite Salles' ragged editing and tedious pacing, Central Station makes its points about loss and suffering.

Takes viewers on an insightful tour of modern, working-class Brazil.

It may not be much of a movie, but, for the bulk of it, the strong and heartfelt performances of the two leads do make up for the threadbare storyline.

Austin Chronicle

Salles, who also works as a documentary filmmaker, does a superlative job of bringing the realism of the streets and the countryside to this narrative fiction.

Salles provides a textbook example of how to toy with our emotions, how to involve and move us, without necessarily condescending to us or insulting us.

It'll probably work better if you're not terribly familiar with the movies that inspired it.

If you don't at least tear up in the film's final scene, you are either seriously lacking emotion, or dead.

Central Station profoundly satisfies on many levels, but is most poignant as a tale of redemption and triumph allowed the kind of heroine who can only exist outside Hollywood.

Little goes on under the surface here and in the end it seems more sentimental than insightful.
