Le Train is an allegorical story. A railroad worker has arrived at a halt in his life, at the same stopping point as his locomotive - a place situated between memory and imagination where the spectator may integrate himself into the poetic fiction. This work is composed of a series of images which create an illusion to the man's experiences, and are supported by an incisive, impressionistic and symbolic soundtrack that emphasizes the dramatic aspect of the images.
