Storyline

On December 24th the Orient Express gets snowbound near a little mountain village and its passengers are forced to spend some time there, mingling with the local people, upsetting their usually monotonous daily lives. Beatrice, the beautiful schoolmistress, finding it harder and harder to put up with the courtship of Dal Pozzo, the arrogant, pot-bellied mayor, falls for Jacques, a handsome journalist she mistakes for a time for a dangerous criminal. On the other hand, the sight of Roxane, a vaudeville star, kindles a flame in the pure heart of Giovanni, Dal Pozzo's bullied nephew. As for the pharmacist, she starts dreaming of a new life with Mr. Davis, an easy-going Englishman. Destiny will bless some of them and thwart others. Written by Guy Bellinger

Terrible tear-jerker
23 January 2003 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

An old European film, concerned very much about the happiness of its characters, tells a few completely unrealistic stories, some of which lead to a happy ending, some of which don't. The Orient Express has to stop for two days at a small village in the Alps, but unfortunately, no murder à la Agatha Christie is committed. No, the travellers get off, spend two nights at the village within a picturesque landscape, fall in love both with the landscape and with various people inside the village. They keep telling each other about their dreams, which - who'd have thought it! - are exactly reciprocal to their lives. The travellers would like to stop travelling, and the village population dreams of seeing the world. Finally, a criminal is arrested, though not for murder on the Orient Express but for God knows what.

This film is a terrible tear-jerker that could be used as a commercial for this Italian village whose name I forgot. Curd Jürgens and Eva Bartok are the best-known actors. They act as melodramatically as necessary. Thank God the film runs only 80 minutes.
