I watched Brief Encounter again this week, only for the second time. Considering how much I love old black and white films, I am amazed it took me so long to watch this one. But I now think that this may be my favourite film of all time. I just adore it. I love the setting, the story, I love the clothes and the manners, I love the way they talk and I love the ultimately doomed love affair.
This is a film for those nights when husband is out and I can curl up on the sofa, under a blanket, glass of wine in one hand and chocolate in the other and I can be transported to another time and place. Bliss.
