This elegant thriller tells the story of the relationship between two apparent opposites in a small French provincial town. One is a bank robber just arrived on the train, the other a retired literature teacher. Through their unexpected friendship, both men come to realize they have been given the opportunity to look back on their lives. At the same time, they are given the chance to explore the road not taken, each wanting to live the other’s life.

This film received two awards, Best Picture and Best actor.
