Jacques Rozier
1986 || 130 mins

A train journey between Paris and Saint-Nazaire aboard the “Maine-Ocean” takes a surreal turn as circumstances bring a diverse assortment of characters together. The passengers include a beautiful black samba dancer, a pair of officious ticket inspectors, a go-getting female lawyer, a garrulous sailor and a Mexican impresario.

Jacques Rozier’s exuberant comedy – his first feature in a decade – won him France’s Jean Vigo prize. Featuring the director’s trademark traits of improvisatory dialogue freewheeling structure, zany comedy and poetic interludes, the film gives an entertaining insight into what happens when people of different backgrounds are thrown together in one place.
