A sleeper train rockets through the night; among its passengers might be a murderer. ‘Night Train’ isn’t quite as overtly Hitchcockian as it sounds, as Kawalerowicz was primarily interested in the quirks that people show in artificial social environments. Leon Niemczyk (‘Knife in the Water’) and the director’s wife, Lucyna Winnicka, are strangers sharing a compartment while studiously hiding personal secrets.
