"Train of Life"
Directed by Radu Mihaileanu
In a bold, seemingly
impossible attempt to escape death at the hands of the Nazis, the citizens
of a small Jewish village in central Europe decide to fake their own
deportation to a concentration camp, riding a train they hope will carry
them to freedom in Russia. A moving comic fable that uses warm humor
without diminishing the backdrop of the Holocaust. "Rollicking...has
the bursting energy of Fiddler on the Roof" (Stephen Holden, The
New York Times). French with English subtitles.
