Train of Life

Genre: Drama, Foreign Language; Director: Radu Mihaileanu; Author: Radu Mihaileanu; Runtime (in minutes): 103; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Paramount Pictures

Think of Train of Life — in which a band of Jews ”hilariously” outwits the Nazis — as Life Is Beautiful’s less popular French stepsister. Schlomo, the village fool, convinces his neighbors to deport themselves by buying a train and dressing as German troops. Though poignant, the fairy tale is more fraudulent than fun. C
