Edinburgh – Summerhall

December 4, 2022 @ 19:00

A humorous, visually punchy first feature by Franco-Greek director Costa-Gavras, adapted from a novel by Sébastien Japrisot.

The first feature by Franco-Greek director Costa-Gavras was adapted from a novel by Sébastien Japrisot and is a humorous, visually punchy take on the murder mystery. Six people share a sleeping compartment on a Paris-bound train. After they arrive, one of them is found strangled, and before long, the killer starts bumping off the remaining passengers. Yves Montand plays a harried police inspector doggedly following up every lead. Red herrings abound and the twists and thrills are masterfully executed with a dream cast.
