Valérie Kaprisky and Jean-François Pichette star in this predictable story of two people, a single mom (Kaprisky) and a man (Pichette), who meet on a train going from Montreal to Vancouver, a very long ride across Cana...展开da that gives them plenty of time to become romantically involved. Viewers may find that the evolution of the romance is as obvious as the train chugging along one track to its inevitable destination.
Moody, sensual, quietly compelling and, ultimately, engaging romantic drama with good performances and dialogue. Pool's best film, and certainly her most accessible...though still given to pretentious dream sequences and visuals. But at least they aren't a substitute for story or character this time around.
