Le Voyage de Monsieur Guitton

France, 1969 (MIFF 1973)

Director: Pascal Aubier

A man notices as he wakes up that his bedroom is behaving like a train. Outside the window, the countryside rushes past. The room/train brakes and then stops. The man gets out on to the platform and then on to the rails to see what is happening to him. An express train rushes up and runs over him.
