At one scene the film begins to slow down, much like a train does when it arrives at a station, the music that accompanies these images begins to slow down as well, until we come to a complete stop.
Basically, this film contains marvellous naturalism of subject matter combined with "state-of-the-art" 30s camera trickery.
