What are critics saying?


Slant Magazine by Bill Weber

Bille August's film is a protracted, soporific trip into Portuguese history that would like to be a romantic thriller.


Village Voice by Calum Marsh

Gentle has its charms, and August's vision of the world, archaic though it may willingly be, is appealingly urbane .


The Playlist by Jessica Kiang

Bloodless, far too genteel, and perfectly content to continually tell where a little showing would be nice; Night Train to Lisbon ends up a deeply unadventurous adventure story.
