A Nazi comedy, always a tricks business, but Lubitsch has proven, that it can be done. Train de Vie is a strange film with a lot of shouting. It's neither funny, nor dramatic, nor full of suspense, it's not surreal, but it's not realistic either. Frankly I don't see the point. Camera work and acting is slightly below average, but what really drags it down is the clumsy script. No sense of pace and crappy dialog.
