- Christopher Null,, Monday, May 14, 2007

Fresh: I don't care for Benjamin's way of using death to validate his sentimental themes, but at this point any American movie that can get past the 'I love you's without audience snickers has to be counted a success.

- Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Saturday, January 1, 2000

Fresh: A sentimental view of small-town life in WWII, in which the railroads and train station are just as important as the human characters.

A personal favorite. Now, this is a movie I don't mind seeing every now and then.

I found this movie boring and uninteresting, but I didn't watch the whole film, so I'd be willing to give it a second look.

I liked this was interesting seeing Cage and Penn so young.....the only thing was that the ending was kinda lame.......they waited too long to really develop the story and then I think they ran out of time and had to end it in a dumb place, it was like there should have been a sequel.
