If one mentions the name David Lean, the director's grand, big-budget spectacles will likely come to mind. Among them are such motion pictures as Lawrence of Arabia, Bridge on the River Kwai and Doctor Zhivago. Yet, one of the most enduring of Lean's works is 1945's Brief En... read more

A classic

After hearing many great things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Personally, I was more familiar with Lean's later work, composed of great epic adventures such as 'Doctor Zhivago', 'Lawrence of Arabia' or 'The Bridge on the River Kwai'.

" One of the most devastating unfulfilled romance movies that has ever been made filled with strong moral themes and symbolism. Without a single kiss it still have more emotion and love poured into it than any other romantic film made. It is a memory to a time when it was possible to meet a stranger, like him and still not f**k him/her totally bonkers in a moment of passion. Strangely enough this romantic movie still feels more timeless than any romantic movie I have ever seen made the last two d"
