At the beginning of World War II, while the Germans entered France from the north, many people had reason to believe that the Germans would not treat them kindly, and they fled by train to the south. This French film tells the story of a few of them. Because they were fleeing the best-organized bureaucrats in the world, many of them chose to flee in freight cars, unseen and unnoted. When Meyereu (Jean-Louis Trintignant) is separated from his wife during the escape, he allows a Jewish girl (Romy Schneider) to pose as his wife. As the deception continues, they come to care for each other, but she discreetly disappears when his real wife turns up. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
the dialogue was so bad/foolish i couldn't finish watching the dvd. the movie's star jean louis trintignant deserves better than this horrible rendition. this might have been an excellent movie in its orig lang but is worthless now. bbust does members a disservice by not warning them that this dvd has been dubbed. it should have been listed so i could avoid renting it.
dvd's can support several languages so it's even worse that the dvd manufacturer didn't bother to put the real language on it.
