An adaptation by director Tomáš Luňák from the dark comic-book trilogy by Jaroslav Rudiš and Jaromír 99 combining animation and live-action. The authors have chosen rotoscoping as the visual approach for the film in order to remain true to the style of the original comic book.
Set in the end of the eighties in the twentieth century. The story centers on Alois Nebel (Miroslav Krobot, The Man from London) who works as a dispatcher at the small railway station on the Czech-Polish border. He’s a loner, who prefers old timetables to people, and he finds the loneliness of the station tranquil – except when the fog rolls in. Then he hallucinates, sees trains from the last hundred years pass through the station. They bring ghosts and shadows from the dark past of Central Europe.
The film set to premiere at the 68th Venice International Film Festival and 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
