This review is from: The Railway Man [DVD]  (DVD)
A bit like 12 Years a Slave this is one of those films where anyone with half a brain cell with find impossible not to like. It's such a touching story and Teplitzky handles it very well. The acting was first class all round. I could see Jeremy Irvine or Hiroyuki Sanada getting a best supporting actor Oscar nomination.The movie looks fantastic from the grays of Scotland to the green and yellows of Thailand. Often films with flashback and time changes become confusing and dis-jointed but The Railway man is very well paced and there is always something going on and the ending was lovely. I really can not think if anything I would have done differently or anything to criticize. This is by a long mile the best modern film I have watched in a long time.
