Critic Reviews for Night Train To Lisbon

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (17)

  • In its lesser moments, the film feels like a European art-house adaptation of a Mills and Boon novel or a Saga holiday commercial, but it is beautifully shot and packed with cameos from big-name actors.

  • On TV, this might while away a rainy Sunday afternoon.

  • It's always a stretch for a movie to unfold in two time frames and have different actors play characters at different stages of their lives, and here the casting isn't entirely successful.

    February 21, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Night Train to Lisbon ends up a deeply unadventurous adventure story.

    December 7, 2013 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • It's all terribly talky and low-energy; that wonderful noirish title, it turns out, was just a front for a history lecture.

    December 6, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Bille August's film is a protracted, soporific trip into Portuguese history that would like to be a romantic thriller.

Audience Reviews for Night Train To Lisbon

  • Jan 09, 2015
    A ridiculous drama that feels like a cheesy soap opera, completely unaware of the meaning of subtlety and with everything so absolutely obvious and artificial: risible metaphors, a clichéd cinematography, self-help platitudes and an awfully embarrassing dialogue.

    Eventually delves into Portugal's dark past-interestingly.

    This German/Suisse/Portuguese drama directed by Bille August is based on the novel Night Train to Lisbon by Pascal Mercier. Starring Jeremy Irons it had some potential to be great but the screenplay written by Greg Latter and Ulrich Herrmann was too safe with no thrill or unexpected events. The story about a Swiss professor who saves the life of a woman who wanted to commit suicide and then abandons his teaching career and reserved life to embark on a thrilling intellectual adventure to Portugal was actually a story that takes him on a journey to the very heart of himself. The problem is that the adventure was too predictable even with the added thrill elements to keep us interested.

The real heart wasn't there as well as the substance. If you are fan of Jeremy Irons - it's worth watching it for the performance. Of course, there are other stars as well: Charlotte Rampling, Christopher Lee, Bruno Ganz... the acting was the strongest part of this movie. You can see some old-world elegance of Bern, the cobbled charms of Lisbon and some panoramic views of Portuguese coastal roads, but don't expect too much of anything else!
