The Sleeping Car Murders

Compartiment tueurs

95 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA | 1965 | dir. Costa-Gavras, with Catherine Allégret, Jacques Perrin, Simone Signoret, Michel Piccoli, Jean-Louis Trintignant

This 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. Red herrings abound and the twists and thrills are masterfully executed with a dream cast including the late, great Michel Piccoli.
