Synopsis: Three interwoven stories set during a train journey from Central Europe to Rome. On board is a professor who daydreams a conversation with a love that never was, a family of Albanian refugees who switch trains and steal a ticket, three brash Scottish soccer fans en route to a match, and a complaining widow travelling to a memorial service for her late husband accompanied by a community-service volunteer. Interactions among these Europeans turn on class and nationalism, courtesy and rudeness, and opportunities for kindness. Directed by Ermanno Olmi, Abbas Kiarostami and Ken Loach, and stars Carlo Delle Piane, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Silvana De Santis, Filippo Trojano, Martin Compston, Gary Maitland, William Ruane and Blerta Cahani.
