Everyone tries hard, but the movie is essentially superficial and has difficulty sustaining audience interest.

A sentimental view of small-town life in WWII, in which the railroads and train station are just as important as the human characters.

Very little seems to happen in this social vacuum, and none of it is memorable.

It's easy to end a movie with 'I love you,' but it's hard to get there honestly.

It lacks [My Favourite Year's] winning charm.

An exceptionally appealing movie about subjects you may think you've already had enough of -- growing up, first love and the shouldering of arms and other responsibilities.

I don't care for Benjamin's way of using death to validate his sentimental themes, but at this point any American movie that can get past the 'I love you's without audience snickers has to be counted a success.
