Quotes

Poirier, the chef: ...cover with white wine, put it into the oven, and voila, it's cooked.
Denning: I say, that's very neat isn't it? But do you really think cods worth all that trouble?
Poirier, the chef: Trouble?
Denning: Yes, you see at home we just lower the jolly old creature into the boiling water, let it boil, serve it up with greens and chips.
Poirier, the chef: But you get no sauce...?
Denning: Oh Good Lord yes - there's always a bottle of sauce around somewhere.

Standard post-war British spy film.
22 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

Sleeping Car to Trieste is pretty much a standard post-war British spy thriller set on The Orient Express with all the usual sets and train mock-ups. Nothing too cerebral but light entertainment when you have nothing better to do.
