    The Train 1964

    ★★★★★ Watched 02 Dec, 2016

    I can't remember where I heard about this but I'd been wanting to watch it for ages. Finally found it at a local video rental store and it was every bit as good as I'd been promised. A WWII action thriller which pushes us to consider the price of art, national identity and culture against that of human life. I can't stress how excellent Paul Scofield was as the German officer obsessed with getting the art to Germany. Both the people I watched with kept saying, "How have I never heard of this? It was so good!"
