Despite its predictability, this is an engaging romance with two big assets, its lead actors, Metin Akduler and Dilan Cicek Deniz. Both manage to convey their respective characters' demons and weaknesses at the same time they showcase attractive vulnerabilities that make us root for them. There can be no doubt that, locked in a train compartment for 14 hours together, these two wounded romantics will find each other attractive, so their final get-together comes as no surprise.

What the filmmakers of One-Way to Tomorrow do so well is draw us in and keep us interested through long talky monologues and dialogues. While an arbitrary series of supertitles announce "Part One," "Part Two," etc., between those long bouts of dialogue there's an exceptional array of Turkish and other international pop songs that supply a haunting score.
