Flames of Passion
An ingenious gay homage to Brief Encounter.
1989 17 mins
Director: Richard Kwietniowski
Set on a steam-shrouded railway station and shot in high-contrast black and white, Richard Kwietniowski's film lovingly twists David Lean's stiff-upper-lipped romance Brief Encounter into a rich and witty contemporary melodrama, with two devilishly handsome young men standing in for Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard. One of the most striking and memorable short films of the last few decades.
