Fred is living in the Paris Metro system. He is blackmailing Helena, whose safe he has robbed. Fred has various 'friends' all living in this sureal setting. The Roller is a rollerskating bag snatcher and Big Bill is a 'strongman'. The blackmail and Freds relationship with Helena and her heavies make up the bulk of the plot but on the side are Freds attempts to start a band using buskers from the Metro. Written by

How can I keep on smiling at their disguise? When I know nothing good ever comes from lies. My heart is no beginner. But still, I can lose my temper. Yeah. How can we keep on watching that fuckin' TV? We're so bored, we don't even care what we see. Takes our strength away. And never, never shows us the way. No. But I think I know the answer. It's only mystery and I like it.

Ambient, moody, stirring and very eighties production.
Before Christopher Lambert's downfall into garish sci-fi flicks such as Highlander 2 & 3 and Fortress, he starred in some very good French films. 'Subway' is one of them.
The film opens in the midst of a car chase, and from there, Fred, the protagonist, finds himself sifting through the underground maze of the Paris Metro (or the subway).
During his escape from the authorities, he meets all sorts of colourful characters. Vagabonds and thieves who introduce him into the seedy underworld of the Paris Metro. The film keeps up a decent pace and the character study is of top notch.
A quality production. Eight out of ten.
