wonderfully sad or sadly wonderful

I've just seen once again this wonderful Brazillian film and every time, I just can't help noticing that Central Station has one great quality: simplicity. That's absolutely relevant for a film to be classified as "great". In just a few minutes into the story, it already has our complete attention.

The film tells the story of Dora (Fernanda Montenegro, exceptional) a woman who makes... read more

I remember well when this movie was released. Indeed, it was a big critical success and it even won the Golden Bear in the Berlin Film and the Golden Globe for the Best Foreign Language Film among other prizes.

Josue is a 9-year-old boy who never met his father. His mother is sending letters to his father through Dora. When she dies in a car accident, Dora takes Josue on a trip to find his father.

“I remember well when this movie was released.

With this in mind, I was really eager to check this flick, I even saw it in the movie theater when it was released, and I had some rather high expectations. Well, to be honest, even though I thought it was indeed pretty good, I can’t say it really blew me away though. I don’t know, maybe my expectations were too high or maybe I was just too young to really appreciate it but, somehow, I thought it was a decent story but nothing really amazing.
