Central Station (1998)

CENTRAL STATION is worth a visit.  The octogenarian-and-the-orphan 
premise is both way cute and an effective contrast to some serious-
ly stark third-world realism.  Fab photography, too.  Best Actress
nominee Fernanda Montenegro stars, along with Vinicius de Oliveira, 
Marilia Pera, and Soia Lira.  Walter Salles directs; Joao Emanuel 
Carneiro and Marcos Bernstein are credited with the screenplay.  In
Portuguese, with subtitles.  (Rated "PG-13"/106 min.) 

Grade: B+
