Costa-Gavras : Compartiment tueurs

Tuesday 5 November 2019 18:45-20:45

In October and November 2019, the Institut français d’Ecosse will be screening 4 films of the film Greek-French director Costa-Gavras.

These events are free, but for members only. We invite you to book early and if you are not yet a member of the Institut français d’Ecosse, we invite you to join. The film this week is Compartiment Tueurs.

This screening will be introduced by Dr François Giraud (University of Edinburgh). His talk will encompass the filmmaking career of Costa-Gavras and the role of political cinema in France.

Six people travel in a railroad sleeping car from Marseilles to Paris. Upon their arrival, a woman is found dead in one of the berths. The police investigate the other five passengers, suspecting that one of them committed the homicide, but the suspects are killed one by one. The last two must solve the case themselves before they become the next victims.

Starring Catherine Allégret, Jacques Perrin, Simone Signoret
