Lenin...The Train is a 1988 Austrian-French-German-Italian-Spanish TV movie directed by Damiano Damiani. The plot of the film takes place during the First World War, in 1917. The German Empire fights simultaneously on two fronts, in the west and in the east. In this situation, an exile Russian addressed to the German General Staff: Lenin, the Russian revolutionary, who lives in Swiss exile in Zurich, should be allowed to return to his homeland, to bring about a successful transformation of the political conditions in the Russian Empire. The proposal is put into action. Lenin and a group of exiled revolutionaries board a special train and travel from Switzerland through Germany and Sweden to Petrograd. During the train's journey, Lenin discusses his political ideas with his fellow travelers.
