Storyline

A young Italian, living in Paris with his French wife, is about to become a father. Before the baby is born, Alberto must repay his father for every expense from his own birth until he left home. It's a family tradition, virtually a family curse. With little money in hand, he jumps on a train to Italy, the "Alberto Express," to return to his father. During the journey, he tries scheme after scheme to secure a windfall. En route, he also has a magical encounter with generations of his paternal ancestors, each of them adding again and again the sums owed them by their sons. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I Know This Is A Comedy, But Are You Kidding Me?
30 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't exactly find this "often hilarious" and "one of the year's ten best" as the critics labeled this. Excuse my morality, but stealing from people on a consistent basis to pay off a debt is not funny. Here, it is portrayed as "okay" because most of the robbing victims don't care and the thief is just some poor innocent-looking pathetic victim of strange parents. Huh? What is this....the Menendez brother on the loose?

To make matters worse, "Alberto's" debut is paying back his parents for raising him! Excuse me, isn't that parents do...and for love, not money? More twisted values.

Most of the scenes with "Albert" take place on a train, hence the title "The Alberto Express." This is one train I wouldn't advise taking. It is dumb and an insult to your intelligence.
