Brief encounter by David Lean( Visual )

15 editions published between 1945 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A middle class housewife relives her brief encounter with a married doctor, an unfulfilled chance to escape from the emotional impoverishment of her existence although the film never really explores options. What makes for a genuinely emotional experience is the strength of the portrayals of the couple by Trevor Howard and particularly Celia Johnson. Locations have vaguely symbolic connotations in a form of realism charged with effects designed to heighten the sense of subjectivity. Johnson plays the middle class housewife with the accent and manner of an upper class woman while the working class station guard and buffet proprietoress are close to caricatures
