A good movie

Like the other movies directed by Lars von Trier, as usual, I had a rather hard time to connect with it as the narrative structure was really obscure which made for a quite mesmerizing but also rather frustrating viewing. Basically, what did he try to achieve with this tale? Difficult to say… Roger Ebert had an interesting theory that the film was about the severe pains ending in death inflecte... read more

(MU) Well structured, crescendo in and out a train, atmosphere, good texture, colour b/w matches, good acting, nice hero....

An American of German descent arrives in post-war Germany 1945. His uncle gets him a job on the Zentropa train line as a sleeping car conductor. The American's wish is to be neutral to the ongoing purges of loyalists by the Allied forces and do what he can to help a hurting country, but he finds himself being used by both the Americans and the influential family that owns the railroad. After falling in love with the railroad magnate's daughter, he finds that he can't remain neutral and must make some difficult choices.

"Una película bastante extraña, no por su trama sino por la forma en que se cuenta. Un joven es enviado a la Alemania ocupada por los aliados para realizar trabajos, pero todo da un giro cuando conoce a una misteriosa mujer que lo involucra con una conspiración nazi. Lo más importante no es tanto su historia algo predecible para algunos, sino su experimentación visual y su narración ambigua que te dejará pensando ¿Qué exactamente acaba de pasar? "

" Date: 11/14/2020 Viewed: Criterion Channel First Viewing Note: I always wanted to see this movie for years because it looks amazing. Not to mention, I'm a fan of Lars von Trier and I still haven't seen all of his movies. His Europa trilogy movies such as The Element of Crime (1984) and Epidemic (1987) are hard to find and I can never find them in good quality. Fortunately, Criterion owns this movie and you can watch it on their streaming service (As of 12/14/2020). I did try to watch this mo"

A Complete Review of Lars von Trier's work (16 movies items)

" Cast : Jean-Marc Barr, Udo Kier, Eddie Constantine, Max von Sydow, Lars von Trier What was it about? Just after W.W.II, an American takes a railway job in Germany, but finds his position politically sensitive with various people trying to use him. My two cents: Like the other movies directed by Lars von Trier, as usual, I had a rather hard time to connect with it as the narrative structure was really obscure which made for a quite mesmerizing but also rather frustrating viewing.
