This stylish, cult 1966 erotic thriller stars French new wave icons Jean-Louis Trintigant (Amour, The Conformist) and Marie-France Pisier (Stolen Kisses, Bed and Breakfast). Trintignant plays a drug courier smuggling a stash of cocaine from Paris to Antwerp on the Trans-Europ-Express. Matters are complicated by surreal encounters with police, three filmmakers who are also on the train making a film about drug traffickers, and erotic-fantasy sequences featuring Pisier being bound and subjected.

Thriller written and directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet. The story follows Jean (Robbe-Grillet), a film director, his producer Marc (Paul Louyet) and assistant Lucette (Catherine Robbe-Grillet) as they ride the Trans-Europ Express train from Paris to Antwerp. Inspired by their setting and fellow passengers, the team decide to use the train as inspiration for a film and immediately begin writing a thrilling crime plot. In their visualised story Elias (Jean-Louis Trintignant) is a drug runner on the same train journey as the film-makers, who begins acting out unusual fantasies in his compartment with a recently met street walker. Both strands of the story are brought together when Elias meets the film team constructing his story as they edit his existence.
