Movie Info

This complex and witty crime drama is set aboard a Paris train bound for Antwerp. Aboard are a husband and wife. Also aboard, but during a different time and space, is a gangster. The husband and wife are planning to make a film, Trans-Europ-Express featuring an actor who looks exactly like the gangster. The film takes a free-form rather than chronological approach to telling the tale. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi


Critic Reviews for Trans-Europ-Express

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

  • But the incessant reshuffle of props-mirrors, posters, places, people and hardware in sado-masochistic juxtaposition-is often funny. There are some excellent sharp scenes, including an inevitable one among abandoned railroad cars.

  • Think of it as [Alain Robbe-Grillet's] Breathless, a pulp story refracted with his own distinctive take on narrative deconstruction and sexual perversity.

Audience Reviews for Trans-Europ-Express

A screenwriter pitches a complicated story about a cocaine smuggling caper to a producer during a train ride, and the audience watches the results play out, revisions and all. Very dry, very French crime spoof with a hint of perversion (the film-inside-the-film protagonist is obsessed with bondage).
