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>

Castellitto and Joffe= Success!
14 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I gotta say, the best work Sergio Castellitto has ever done has been with French director Arthur Joffe (Ne Quittez Pas, Albreto Express, Que La Lumiere Soit). Joffe brings out the best in Castellitto, heck, in fact, he practically discovered the guy!! Thanks to Joffe, Castellitto has emerged as one of the most outstanding actors from Italy, if not in the world. I suggest "Alberto Express" to everyone expecting a child, both men and women. It is a funny, charming, fantastic and exciting story! BRAVO to Arthur Joffe and Sergio Castellitto for making an unforgettable and touching film! If you like their collaboration, then go see "Ne Quittez Pas" (Local Call)!
