The Train

Masterpieces of art, stolen by the German army from French museums, are about to be shipped to Germany by railroad. The French resistance, determined to steal the paintings back, construct an elaborate plan to reroute the train and enlist the help of reluctant railway worker Paul Labiche (Burt Lancaster). Based on the nonfiction book Le front de l’art by Rose Valland, The Train depicts the bravery and spirit of the French underground, many of whom risked their lives to stop the Nazi plundering of their cultural heritage, through a mastery of melodramatic and hairtrigger suspense storytelling. (35mm)
