When you find love when you must not, love becomes a nightmare of guilt and consuming shadows. Lean's subtle directing presents the first scene as the end of a long relationship -- filmmaking swallowed by the power of memory, as she imagines herself telling her affair to her husband, only to come back to that first/last encounter with a weight she cannot bear. She knows happiness and misery are not forever, specially this late in her life. Edgy, self-contained melodrama. That era's Carol.

What this movie captures so so well is the transformation of an ordinary housewife into a beautiful woman -- something that the book (judging also by the hackneyed voiceover) would probably fail at. Good job Celia Johnson!

Truly a high point of the cinematic art. Lean's use of framing and of dark and light, as well as the transitions in and out of voice-overs and framing devices, are masterful. The story is compelling thanks to Celia Johnson's affecting performance of an upper-class lady who, far from being distant and contented, seems vulnerable, scared yet hopeful. And that perfect crystal-clear RP voice - I could listen to her narration all day. I'm glad I discovered another gem from this genius David Lean.

Call me an old-timey moralist or sexually frustrated, but most sex scenes in films feel like a waste of time. That's why Brief Encounter works so well, it's based on restrained passion rather than padding out the story with sex, as Laura's guilt for betraying her husband gives the film its tension and makes the character deeply sympathetic. Though this film may sound repressed, it's anything but, even the opening shot of a train steaming past the camera is hot enough to give me a boner.
