Night Train (Pociag)



On the run from authorities, an anxious Jerzy joins a diverse group of passengers who board an overnight express headed for a resort by the Baltic Sea. Jerzy is paired with Marta for the night when they accidentally end up with tickets to the same sleeper berth. Marta is trying to escape Staszek, her spurned lover who is determined to find her at all cost. Tension escalates after the police enter the train looking for an escaped killer, turning the nervous passengers into a frenzied lynch mob fueled by rumor and hysteria. Director Jerzy Kawalerowicz—who favored stories about individual fate in a society crushed by external forces—cast legendary Polish star Zbigniew Cybulski as Staszek. Fresh from his success in ASHES AND DIAMONDS, Cybulski gives one of his best performances as the crazed lover on a doomed course.
