| By Train To The October Revolution
Before viewing 'Lenin: The Train' for the second time, I went and visited the On Line Encyclopedia to remember the Russia-1917-story. So, I found back Lenin, his mistress Inès, and all the people they had met on their way to the Revolution. This time they were very familiar to me. In this road motion picture, they are credible human beings. Damiani is a good director. The special atmosphere of travelling by train, I have always been fond of, is there. The regular knocking of the wheels on the rails, and the train that whistles are part of the cast and the drama. It's a film where we find a small bit of war and great moral battle; a few distressing scenes when people are killed; love and treason, shown with discretion, penetrate the soul. If there are some boring scenes in this 170 minutes film for which the 8/10 rate has not been robbed, they are washed away by the nice music. Go and see. Brilliant!
