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

Left me feeling like I was taken for a ride to nowhere.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A ambientação da história em um trem em movimento é interessante e cria bons momentos, mas, de modo geral, a trama e os diálogos não fazem jus ao cenário.

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

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.

This lean, haunting Polish thriller that takes place almost entirely during one train trip explores the coldest of the cynic's battle-cries: your worst nightmare is everyone else's favorite joke.
