The last train ("El ultimo Tren" aka "Corazon de fuego") movie
For the filming was used an ancient locomotive managed by the Uruguayan Railfan Association, precisely the ANP 1. It appeared as the Locomotive: CT 33 (030-tender), a fictional number for the film. The machine actually used was an Orenstein & Koppel 0-3-0 without tender, owned by the National Port Administration and loaned to the real "Amigos del Riel".
This locomotive was painted No. 33 on the sides of the cabin, for the making of the movie "Heart of Fire", of which it was the main protagonist.
. Manufacturer: "ORENSTEIN KOPPEL & ARTHUR KOPPEL". . Factory number: 5433. . Year of construction: 1912. . Locomotive Type: Tank 0-6-0. . Dimensions: Length 7900 mm. Width 2800mm. Weight: 45 Ton. Maximum speed: 50 km/h (31 mile/h) at 260 RPM. Power: 520 HP. See more »
Some months ago we saw a trailer for this movie on TV. My five-year old son sat up, looked at the short film and proclaimed, that he wanted to see this movie.
Since then he has often asked, when the movie would be shown here in Berlin. Yesterday it was finally shown, as part of retrospective of Latin films.
The plot, that an old engine driver has to team up with a young boy to save a steam engine from being taken out of the country is such, that a child can understand it. He basically loved it - judging from his reactions and the amount he has talked about it since then.
I cannot add a lot to the very positive comments by other users. Just say that this is a good dad-son film.
Edit: Half a year later I finally managed to get the DVD, which son must have seen 20 times, at least. The film started him on two tracks: 1) He is interested in learning Spanish and asks what different words are called in Spanish.
2) More importantly, he has also wondered about legality and morals. We have had a few discussions about how some acts may be illegal, but still the right thing to do.
All in all - on the basis of the discussions we had about the movie - it is the best film we have seen together.
