Movie Reviews

Some passengers envision romantic possibilities as they ride
Richard J. Brzostek | New England, USA | 03/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Night Train" (Pociag) is a story about a man and a woman who have to share a compartment on a train even though they would rather be alone. They both want their privacy so they speak to each other in riddles. Because they share very few details with each other, it takes a long time to figure out who they really are and what they are up to.

There is more to the story than mere strangers sharing a room. Some passengers envision romantic possibilities as they ride the train though the night. An otherwise uneventful ride is broken up by the excitement of authorities searching the train for a man who supposedly killed his wife. Many of the passengers get excited and create a witch-hunt. When the man she got to know is accused of being the killer, their interactions take new meaning and test their brief friendship.

Jerzy Kawalerwicz, who has considerable talent, directs "Night Train." As with his other films, such as "Mother Joan of Angels," "Austria," and "Quo Vadis," "Night Train" is exceptional. All in all, "Night Train" creates a romantic feeling, with its play on drama and jazzy music that ties it all together. The movie is a drama that borders on being a thriller. The story, presentation, and music are memorable and captivating.
