Deep and poignant.

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.

An often amusing parody that more closely resembles Hogan's Heroes than Life is Beautiful.
