Thank heavens for Jeremy Irons. There are few other actors who could glue together this plodding literary adaptation with the naturally engaging gravitas that Irons brings to the screen. He plays Raimund Gregorius, a self-declared boring professor living in grim, grey Bern who surprises himself by impulsively catching a train to sunny Lisbon in pursuit of a shadowy author.

Feels like a relic of the good ol' Europudding days.

[The] execution fails to live up to its superlative cast. August's film struggles to marry the story's two timeframes with the narrative leapfrogging back and forth.

Rather like its central Jeremy Irons character: a well-meaning but inescapably dull looker-on of life who is curious about drama, passion, poetry and revolution...

Take the last train to Clarksville, the midnight train to Georgia -- anything but this wheezing locomotive.
