Plot Summary

Burt Lancaster plays Labiche, a French railway inspector. Allied forces are threatening to liberate Paris, so Col. Franz von Waldheim (Paul Scofield) is ordered to move the priceless works of art from the Jeu de Paume Museum to the fatherland. The head of the museum (Suzanne Flon) attempts to convince Labiche that he should sabotage the train on which they are transporting the art. After his friend is killed trying to stop the train with the art, and after a consciousness-raising conversation with a hotel owner (Jeanne Moreau), Labiche resolves to save the antiquities.

Customer Reviews

Classic.

Watch this movie if: You like trains. You like suspense and action. You like WWII drama. You like good movies.

The Train

The Train is more than a war movie. The intelligent script, the intense acting (esp Scofield & Lancaster), the gritty realism of the black & white camera work, the suspense that holds you to the end, all contribute to one of the most powerful movies ever made. It is more than worth the two hour investment to watch it....

On my top 5 list

One of my all time favorite movies. Gripping, superbly written and acted, amazing action and special effects, creative (and sometimes eye-popping) camera angles. A real winner.
