The Lovers of Midnight

Les amours de minuit

France, Germany, 1931


Augusto Genina loves trains. Nobody knows better than him how to convey their melancholic air. Departures, puffing locomotives, deafening confusion, an escape through time and space: all of this is a source for undeniable poetry.
