The boredom is surprisingly unrelieved.
The stars give the drama a real pro try and the professional standards of delivery are high, even though the character interpretations will not be liked by all.
It has a raw truth about it that is still deeply moving.
The filmmakers must have been trying to create another Brief Encounter (the railway station, the impossible love, etc) but missed by a mile and a half.
Bowdlerized or not, the aching pathos of two aging ingénues huddled over a restaurant table and pouring over their mutual fragility remains intact
The film succeeds when focusing on small moments, gestures, etc. But De Sica can't resist loading the film up to make it feel more significant than it really is.
Vittorio De Sica's Terminal Station gets a DVD release with it's more widely known cut version, Indiscretion of an American Wife.
I'd be hard-pressed to name two actors with less obvious chemistry together.
Most striking is the chemistry between the leading actors
De Sica's film wants to be Brief Encounter but lacks the necessary emotion, emerging instead as merely a pale imitation.
Most of the movie is pretty exciting, but it's pretty boring the rest of the time, so it's not that great.
Muddled pointless drama with an overacting Jones and a curiously blank Clift. Heavily edited film makes little sense and offers no real involvement in it's story as it jumps without much cohesion from one point to another.
