Ah, good to see Trevor -Brief Encounter-Howard is back on the job. Lean's atmospheric production raises the modest source material above the dull world of RP accents and stiff upper lip convention. Naughty TH gets it on with Jane-butter wouldn't melt-Todd, in his inimitable decorous manner. Lean lets the Swiss mountains convey the passion. Not a classic, but eminently watchable.
I had not seen this before. My loss! Beautiful filmed, and indeed, a posh version of the brief encounter kind with international location shots. The lighting and sets are gorgeous and convincing acting with a rip roaring finale speech by Claude Raines.
Romance in the classic style brilliantly directed and conceived by David Lean. This is not far behind a Brief Encounter in depicting the tradegy of forbidden love. Not sure how this film is not more well known.
Il confronto inevitabile è con "Breve incontro". Inutile dire che "Sogno d'amanti" ne esce perdente.
Molto bella la scena nella quale il marito, non visto, soffre, oltre al proprio dolore, quello della moglie che, dal balcone, saluta l'amante sventolando un fazzoletto bianco.
simply grand ! A rare treat to see the magic of Claude Raines in a beautiful, quiet, delicate English film like this; threepenny cups of tea and undergound stations in their finest hour juxtaposed with glamourous speedboats on Swiss lakes.
