Man on the Train Man on the Train

A poet. A thief. Two strangers with nothing in common are about to trade their lives for a chance to cheat their destinies.

A man, Milan (played by Johnny Hallyday) steps off a train, into a small French village. As he waits for the day when he will rob the town bank, he runs into an old retired poetry teacher named M. Manesquier (Jean Rochefort). The two men strike up a strange friendship and explore the road not taken, each wanting to live the other's life.
