Storyline

Why would someone like Leyla go to a high school reunion dinner? And take an overnight train to get there. After all, she hasn't been to a single one for the last 25 years - What is Canan, a student nurse, doing on the train? Reluctantly going to an interview for a nursing job when she would like to be an actress instead. And Yavuz? He spends all day lying by the window watching the passing hawkers, horse carriages and people. He is waiting for Canan, or maybe Leyla, or maybe a executioner and a poet who meet on a train one night.

A Beautiful Road Movie
10 November 2017 | by aleladebiraliSee all my reviews

One of the best Turkish movies I have seen in a while.

As the train the movie's point-of-view character (Leyla) took moves forward to its destination, the plot thickens. We see some of Anatolia from the train and on the train. 'The Blue Train' has a cozy atmosphere in which Leyla and other passengers who are like a summary of the Turkish society engage in simple but also interesting conversations. Tea, the road, everyday problems, secrets... Almost everything about life is on that train so that we could learn more about death and why anyone would come to desire it.

The movie is so full of lovely poetry and literary references in Turkish that I do hope the subtitles can live up to them.

I strongly recommend it. It's best to watch it in a chilly day and critique it afterwards with friends at a café that is as cozy as 'the Blue Train', which is exactly what I did.
