Storyline

For six months, Jean-Louis has caught the 9:06 train for Cateau. It's two cars long and he sits in the front car. On January 2, 1992, after the train has left the station, the conductor informs him that the 9:06 no longer stops in Cateau; Jean-Louis will have to pay a fine, get off at Desvres, and catch a bus back. He panics, he'll be late, he'll lose his job, his children will starve. He pleads with the conductor as the other passengers in the car listen. The conductor takes him to see Errol, the engineer; Jean-Louis pleads with Errol to stop the train in Cateau. Errol says he can't do that, but if Jean-Louis is a fast runner, he has an idea that just might work. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Haunting!
20 November 2001 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This short film will haunt you. It takes you deep into the main character's life and habits, and then you realize how much you look like him, and how much this story sounds true. Then, when you begin to feel concerned about the character's ordeal, you begin to be happy for him when a solution appears... Until the end, this short film will take your breath, and when the end credits will begin to roll over the ''omnibus'' going away, you'll be horrified at what you just saw happen to that poor guy whose daily concerns are so close to yours. If this film teaches you something, it's that fate can be your worse enemy. Fate, and good will. Watch
