Compartiment tueurs 1965
Before he made his mark as a political director with leftist leanings, Costa-Gravas made his debut with this slick little police thriller about the hunt for a mad killer.

Five men and women are sharing a sleeping car on the night train from Marseille to Paris. The traveling companions are complete strangers and don’t engage in much conversation but, when all the rest of the passengers have gotten off the train, the the attractive, dark-haired woman is found dead inside the sleeping car.

The police investigate the other five passengers, suspecting that one of them committed the homicide, but the suspects are killed one by one. The last two must solve the case themselves before they become the next victims...
