A train travels across Italy toward Rome. On board is a professor who daydreams a conversation with a love that never was, a family of Albanian refugees who switch trains and steal a ticket, three brash Scottish soccer fans en route to a match, and a complaining widow traveling to a memorial service for her late husband who's accompanied by a community-service volunteer who's assisting her. Interactions among these Europeans turn on class and nationalism, courtesy and rudeness, and opportunities for kindness.Written by
The form of the text that the Italian pharmacologist is
writing on his laptop is inconsistent between the close-up shots and the longer-distance ones: the laptop is a Windows machine, and the longer-distance show the Windows operating system, but the close-ups are of the modern Macintosh operating system. See more »
Seems like Ticket didn't quite turn up to be quite a hell of a ride for me. If a Cinephile wants to see a good Journey film there are better options than this. I was awaiting to see this for a very long time and when i eventually viewed it was a disappointing watch. The settings and the characters are quite believable but the dialogues i mean common we do expect a lot especially when an Kiarostami, Olmi and a Loach is directing a film. There are far superior films than (Tickets) which involves Train Journey's that has been made by film directors and the one film that immediately stuck my mind is Nayak (1966) one just have to look for it.
