Opening with a bird’s-eye view of humanity milling like ants, this psychological thriller plays out on an overnight train where a suspected murderer is thought to be hiding.

  • Claustrophobic in its use of constrained space, acute camera angles and tight framing, it is accompanied by a swinging jazz score. A sinister, paranoid atmosphere builds in this microcosm of society to be eventually let loose in an open field in an extraordinary scene of mob vengeance. Lucyna Winnicka (Mother Joan of the Angels) and Zbigniew Cybulski (Ashes and Diamonds) star.
