A formidable addition to this great series, many thanks! I like how you're not making any judgement about any of the movies cited - it's all about the trains.

none i don't like, some where once is enough, maybe twice.

and there is mouvement du désir by léa pool. the entire movie plays in the train thru canada. the little girl kills the time with two snails, the blue and the red one, letting them compete again and again on the window glass. at one point the mother steps on one of them. so the other one get a new coat of paint: black.
