Roman de Gare (Crossed Tracks)
In the still of the night, three lives are about to cross--a woman abandoned, a stranger awaiting his chance and, a best-selling author who imagines the thriller of the year. Deceptively layered and intriguingly misleading, this film centers on an unlikely pair caught up in a game with high stakes--and deadly consequences.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Lelouch is now 71 years old, and I bet he's never had as much fun with a film. Roman de Gare threads plots and characters and twists together like a demented weaver."
‑ Jonathan F. Richards,
"Lelouch and his longtime writing partner, Pierre Uytterhoeven, slyly exploit and subvert audience expectations."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"Lelouch's splintered narrative, mostly related in flashback, plays games with the characters without delivering much of a payoff."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"An engaging, enjoyable slice of suspense from the French."
‑ Jim Schembri, The Age (Australia)
"It's surprising, enthralling, intriguing, blackly droll, and a rattling good yarn."
‑ Mark Demetrius, FILMINK (Australia)
"Even if the game isn't entirely successful, it's fun to play along."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"I think I understand the alternative realities of the plot, and I concede the loose ends are tied up, sort of, but I didn't care."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Stylist Claude Lelouche (A Man and a Woman) is still full of surprises in his choice of genres and subjects."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Is it supposed to be funny, tragic or what? Even the characters don't seem too sure."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Red herrings abound and audience frustration sets in. It's a pity because the film looks good and the Gilbert Becaud songs on the soundtrack are easy on the ear."
‑ David Stratton, The Australian
"Forty years after his breakout success as a filmmaker, Claude Lelouch makes something of a comeback with his playful and sexy whodunit, Roman de Gare."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Don't go to the theater expecting too much and you can't help but leave with a smile on your face."
‑ Richard Nilsen, Arizona Republic
"The air of Gallic nonchalance ensures you have a lot of fun watching Pinon and Ardant match wits. It's Dana, however, who anchors the story."
‑ Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald
"There's a lushness and emotional charge here that makes this very watchable. Don't expect poetry, though; it's more like a good crossword puzzle."
‑ Jason Di Rosso, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"It's filled with intriguing characters, it has a fascinating initial premise -- and then it runs off the rails."
‑ David Stratton, At the Movies (Australia)
