"This first feature by Franco-Greek director Costa-Gavras 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. Red herrings abound and the twists and thrills are masterfully executed! "

With Yves Montand, Simone Signoret, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Michel Piccoli, Jacques Perrin. Film in French with English subtitles.
