From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Trans-Europ-Express is a 1966 film written and directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet and starring Jean-Louis Trintignant and Marie-France Pisier. The title refers to the Trans Europ Express, a former international rail network in Europe.

The film has been variously described as an erotic thriller, a mystery, and a film-within-a-film.

Screenwriting guru Robert McKee classifies Trans-Europ-Express as a "nonplot" film, that is, a film that does not tell a story.[1]

The movie was released on DVD in 2008 in Italy by RHV.
