Movie Info

Originally titled Pociag, this Polish Hitchcock homage stars Lucyna Winnicka and Leon Niemczyk. A mysterious young man (Niemczyk), claiming to be a doctor, boards the night train. Overcrowded conditions compels the new passenger to share a sleeping car with a secretive young woman (Winnicka). Neither of these reluctant companions is prone to small talk--and both seem to be hiding something. In fact, both seem to be running away from something. Once we've digested all this, it is revealed that the police are searching for a murderer. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Pociag (Baltic Express) (Night Train)

  • Oct 19, 2011
    I won't deny the influence of Hitchcock and the initial fragments of the by-then fresh Nouvelle Vague, yet I won't deny its superiority over Hitchcock either. <i>Strangers on a Train</i> (1951)? This groundbreaking Polish masterpiece conglomerates a vox populi of a community of strangers put together under mysterious circumstances. It is labeled as a thriller but its plot emphasis goes much more beyond. The score is superb and the photography work is top-notch: claustrophobic when necessary and exciting and absorbing when capturing an outside world awaiting for unexplained and tragic events to step foot on natural soil. 99/100

    What are the odds when you don't know you're enticing a potential murderer?La notte of the long-lost lovers, quite possibly the vanity of the ethereal breeze during this frail train ride.Kawalerowicz's synchronization when commenting the decisions and tribulations of his native fellowmen bites the dust,causes a challenging,almost psychological earthquake and plunges into a sorrowful pondering on how humanity's sake can and will forever fit inside a handful of train-wagons.
