Audience Reviews for The Passionate Friends

  • Sep 14, 2008
    kind of like a poorer version of brief encounter. there were just too many slow boring parts here. the further it went on the more interesting it got but the build up wasn't too watchable. good try but not decent in my book

    Sort of a Brief Encounter part 2 but not quite as good and with more glamorous characters. The flashback structure didn't work so well and was rather confusing at times. The scenery and techniques were lovely but it wasn't until the last 40 minutes or so till I was really drawn in.
