There are comic romances, there are cheesy romances, there are steamy romances ..... And then, there are the classics!
And if you want a true, enduring, classic romance, there are a few to rival the 1945 David Lean weepy, Brief Encounter.
And whether you’re old enough to have seen it first time around (all 70 years ago!) or young enough to say "Trevor who?", believe me, Brief Encounter has very few rivals.
Although it's "ever so British" in its style, it has a really interesting Irish - or Irish/Australian - connection, in relation to the movie's soundtrack.
Olan McGowan was in to explain.
David Lean’s Brief Encounter is screening with Live Score next Saturday 29 August 2015, 8pm, National Concert Hall with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra // Leon McCawley pianist // John Wilson conductor.
Tickets: €25?€39.50 (conc. €22.50?€35.50)
