I am actually fairly surprised the metacritic score on this is so low; It screams award worthy! Both the story and the humour were subtle, clever, and witty. Jean Rocherforte's charming performance was an excellent balance to Hallyday's stoicI am actually fairly surprised the metacritic score on this is so low; It screams award worthy! Both the story and the humour were subtle, clever, and witty. Jean Rocherforte's charming performance was an excellent balance to Hallyday's stoic character. You could immediately tell the screenwriter thought long and hard on each sentence to create superb symbolism. Also, the opening credits with the flashes of the train were both stunning and captivating. The ending is a little jarring, so I would not recommend it if you are looking for a fun and light film; but, the ending also was satisfactory in that it delivered a fitting conclusion. I only had two qualms with this film: 1) the tonality was too cold and had too many tints of blue that I felt it was a bit distracting and 2) it was advertised to me as a crime thriller which was fairly misleading as there is a lack of action in this film. I most definitely believe think it is worth anyone's time and am glad I was able to watch L'homme du train! Expand
