Fin is a man of diminished stature, who has lived a life in which he is dogged by idiots shouting 'dah plane, dah plane' (imitating Tattoo from Fantasy Island) and, as a result, has become somewhat insular. Bequeathed an abandoned station agent’s shed besides a rail track in Newfoundland, Fin leaves the life he has known behind. Or so he thinks. The combination of a garrulous Cuban with a hotdog stand on his doorway, a divorcee painter who almost kills him twice on the same stretch of road, a librarian with a crush on him and an overweight schoolgirl who wants him to speak in her class, finally draws Fin out of his shell and, in turn, makes The Station Agent remarkable viewing – comprising great warmth and, peculiarly perhaps, sincere truths. Reviewing the film, Philip French quoted Kenneth Tynan on Waiting for Godot (“Nothing happens, twice”) before going on to say: “In The Station Agent, not much happens, several times, but it's worth attending to.” Hide
