France - Man on the Train (L'Homme du train)

A middle-aged thug/degenerate gets off the train in a small French town for the sole purpose of meeting his thug friends - and doing no good.

Quite by chance he meets an elderly retired teacher who was in the same pharmacy, while he - the thug - was buying aspirin. As they walk away they head in the same direction. The teacher invites the thug home to have a glass of water to take his aspirin. Having done so, the thug leaves but soon returns because there is no room at the inn. The teacher invites him to stay a few days until he can catch up with equally thugish friends and make their dastardly plans.

Turns out - the two men from entirely different worlds soon develop a friendship, simply because they are so very different. The much older teacher wants to have some wild experiences and the thug begins to live vicariously in the comfortable home of the teacher. But things must come to an end and it all does end...sob!

A well done film and it makes me think of what Iyanla VanZant once said about people coming into your life for 'a reason, a season, or a lifetime' and they do serve a purpose.

What to drink? How about a cool, refreshing glass of...water! And some ways to make your water more exciting:
