The train will never run late

  • Conclusion: Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman star in this traumatic wartime drama based on fact. Firth plays Eric Lomax, a man obsessed with trains. Kidman plays his long suffering wife who is unable to understand what her husband went through during the Second World War until she speaks with his former commander (played by Stellan Skarsgard). She learns that her husband worked on the infamous Thai-Burma Railway (immortalised in the classic movie 'Bridge Over the River Kwai').

Intense, heart-wrenching, endearing, real - just what a good film should be

  • Summary: I loved this film. I felt that the story was told with great respect for the soldiers who lived through the horrific experiences that the film portrays. While Firth was as good as he always is, the stand-out actor for me was Jeremy Irvine, playing the young Eric Lomax. This film has it all - drama, suspense, heart-wrenching moments, reconciliation.

Harrowing True Story

  • Summary: One man's anguish dealing with the nightmare that was his war-time experience but turns out to be not his torture alone. An awful tale that should and has been told.

Gripping & Engaging

  • Summary: I was so engaged and enthralled with this movie that I had no idea how long I had been watching it for. It starts out very un-assuming and rather quirky but soon delves deep in to despair and torture of the body and soul Colin Firth exhibits what he has become known for as far as historic re-enacting goes just brilliant a real must see!!!

Intense...

  • Summary: Wow! I really enjoyed the movie, subject matter aside! It was intense and emotional! While I did look away a couple of times it was really well done. There was a bit too much back and forth at the start but then it settled down and was an awesome movie. Jeremy Irvine did a fantastic job as the young Eric Lomax, and the similarities between him and Colin Firth were quite impressive! Can thoroughly recommend!

  • Excerpt: Boeiende film over wat een oorlog aan trauma's oplevert en uitwerkt in iemands zijn leven. Interessante karakters en goed gefilmd verhaal.
