Critic Reviews for The Man on the Train
Each actor comes to perfectly embody his character.
Patrice Leconte's fanciful odd-couple drama oozes flavorful, provincial atmosphere.
Under Leconte's artful direction, a believable bond develops between the men, each envious of the direction the other's life has taken.
It is a perfected fable flashing across a screen.
The actors couldn't be more perfect.
Audience Reviews for The Man on the Train
The Man on the Train (2002) This is a great french drama about two men unsatisfied and regretting their lives. Milan (Johnny Hallyday) is a grizzled con (ala Charlie Bronson) looking for one last score, and Manesquier (Jean Rochefort) is a retired literature professor scheduled for a triple-bypass surgery, who wishes that he had lived a more exciting life. As I get older, I can identify with this movie more than maybe a younger viewer, but I highly recommend this movie, if you get a chance to see it.
Nice very nice. A very interesting switcheroo with some genuinely good comedic elements.
A very delicate film, but it works.
