"Un soir un Train" is one of the rare movies I keep watching over and over, simply because André Delvaux, a painter himself, used the same technique as that of a painting. Every picture is a piece of artistic poetry. Anouk Aimée superbly contributes to the dreamy atmosphere of the movie and Yves Montand struggling out of this nightmare is really moving.
"Un soir un train " is really a must see.
