Roman de Gare Movie Poster 2A pedophile escapes prison.

A schoolteacher abandons his job, his wife and family.

A ghostwriter heads south from Paris to rendezvous with a famous author.

A woman gets dumped at a roadside café and gas station by her boyfriend.

She accepts a ride from a stranger. Will it prove to be the final, fatal mistake of her life?

A pig gets slaughtered. Two men appear to die. One woman does.

But who’s who, and who kills who, and why?’

You must watch the French (with English subtitles) film Roman de Gare (“Crossed Tracks”) to find out. Here’s the movie’s trailer.

Just when you think you’ve figured out what’s going on, your mind gets sent spinning out of control by the twists and turns of the plot as the storyline moves forward and the two principal characters meet and then split.

Besides its mysterious elements, what’s intriguing about this movie is that it gives you a taste of ordinary life in the French capital, farming in the countryside, and the romance of living aboard a yacht on the Riviera.  It’s enough to make you want to book the next flight to France to see if you can track down and hangout with the people in this film.

And if you’re a novelist, this is a “must see” movie.
