“In how many other countries would a poll pick Brief Encounter as the best romance of all time? Even in Britain, I wonder how many people born since, say, 1975 would rate it so highly. [Brief Encounter] is etched in nostalgia for an era when trapped middle-class lives contemplated adultery but set the disturbing thought aside… ‘Nothing happens’ is hardly a motto for movies today. But at the end of the second world war, when cinemas were packed, desire on the screen was fabulously (and sometimes hysterically) inflamed by self-denial, shyness and censorship. It’s an open question, of course, but consider the possibility that movie romance, and its dream of desire, were stimulated by the various controls that blocked abandon.”
David Thomson, The Guardian
