The Sleeping Car Murders - POSTPONED

// Out of an abundance of caution, the Embassy has decided to postpone this event. \\

 

The Sleeping Car Murders / Compartiments tueurs

1965 | France | 135 min. 

As part of the film series Costa-Gavras, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy is proud to present a screening of the film The Sleeping Car Murders.

The Sleeping Car Murders is the first feature film by Franco-Greek director Costa-Gavras. Adapted from a novel by Sébastien Japrisot, the film is a humorous, visually punchy take on a murder mystery.

In this great crime film, a young woman is found dead on the overnight train from Paris to Marseille, leading suspicions to fall on the five passengers who shared her compartment. Yves Montand leads a all-star cast in the role of the head detective.

In French with English subtitles
