THE MAN WHO LIES and TRANS-EUROPE EXPRESS

TRANS-EUROPE EXPRESS

(1968, Alain Robbe-Grillet) Trintignant stumbles in and out of a train compartment, where a director (Robbe-Grillet himself), his assistant (Mme R-G), and a producer are hashing out a drug smuggling plot and — perfect casting! — they start visualizing with JLT in the lead, complete with occasional critical interjections. Approx. 105 min. 35mm.

“Appears, on the surface, to be just another pulpy spy flick. Then the actor is introduced wearing a fake beard while winking at the camera, and you know that the rule book is getting chucked out the window. Director and Nouveau Roman godhead Alain Robbe-Grillet proceeds to dive headfirst down the meta–rabbit hole, introducing three bigwig producers plotting out the very film-in-progress we’re watching. Their recipe for success: Cast Jean-Louis Trintignant in it.”
– David Fear, Time Out New York

“Trintignant is unnervingly convincing as the emotionless, sadistic smuggler. Not a film for the kiddies.”
– Joseph Gelmis, Newsday
