1990 – The Movie Train
DescriptionFollowing on from Cites-Cines, the French National Railway Corporation (SNCF) ordered a Cinema Train, a travelling exhibition to attract cinema lovers to railway stations all over France. In a mischievous manner, it evoked all sorts of transport taken from fiction films, except the train! Sets, film mixes, an old passenger plane taken to pieces and put together again and cars cut in two. The whole lot was combined with tricks of the trade and mirror effects to represent the inside of a real caravel, the weightlessness inside a space craft and the repetitive, chock-a-block area of a parking lot. The train atmosphere was still present, symbolised by a luxury sleeper car with suggestive decors and a honeymoon atmosphere.
