There's plenty of room for sentimentality here, but the wonder of Salles' film is all in the telling. Full Review
James Berardinelli
A touching, well-made motion picture whose only real flaw lies in the overfamiliar storyline. Full Review

Normally the sound in movie theaters is of popcorn crunching. But the sound at theaters where Central Station is showing is of hearts breaking. Full Review

The Onion (A.V. Club)
