In the disastrous 1974 remake of Brief Encounter, almost every aspect goes wrong. The casting of glamorous international stars reduces the sense of ordinary people facing emotional conflict, and the structural change also undermines this. The short gay take on the original, Flames of Passion, offered a wordless version, which found some festival favour but not general release.
