Critic Reviews for Train de Vie (Train of Life)
Plays like a lively farce, full of fun and life, but at the same time tainted with the horror of reality.
The marketers would have you believe that Train of Life is a touching, thought-provoking masterpiece. For sixty seconds it's exactly that.
Its international appeal lies in Mihaileanu's wonderful screenplay, which is both profound and funny, a rare combination in any work of art.
