Night Train to Lisbon (Bille August – 2013) B-

A lonely professor in Geneva. A suicidal girl in a red jacket whom he stops from jumping. When she ups and disappears he sets off on her trail to figure out who she was and where she went. Lisbon, as the name of the film indicates, is where she came from and we follow him as he digs deeper into the life of a Dr. and revolutionary who died a while back and fought against the dictator Salazar. As he learns more and digs deeper we follow him along through various flashbacks and interviews. It’s a decent movie with good performances, a lovely setting and interesting plot.
