English Summary:

The Girl on the Train (French: La fille du RER) is a 2009 French drama film directed by André Téchiné, starring Emilie Dequenne, Catherine Deneuve and Michel Blanc. The plot centers on an aimless girl who lies about being the victim of a hate crime.

Jeanne Fabre, an attractive late-teen carefree loner, spends her time rollerblading through Paris and job-hunting, a nuisance she endures to indulge her widowed mother, Louise, who runs a day-care center out of their house. Watching a television news story about anti-semitic attacks, Louise recognizes Samuel Bleistein, a prestigious Jewish lawyer who was in love with her many years ago. Louise arranges a job interview for her daughter at Bleistein’s law firm.

Samuel is visited by his son Alex, who has comes to Paris to celebrate his son Nathan’s upcoming bar mitzvah. Alex's encounter with his ex-wife Judith, who is Samuel’s assistant, is tense.

Jeanne’s job interview is a disaster. Unfazed by this failure, Jeanne resumes rollerblading and unexpectedly meets Franck, a young wrestler, who instantly falls for her. A relationship ensues and the couple eventually move-in together. Believing Jeanne has a job, Franck finds a job as well, as the caretaker in an electrical shop. The place turns out to contain hidden drugs and Franck is badly wounded in a fight with a drug dealer. The police arrest Franck, who rejects Jeanne when she visits him at the hospital, having found out that she was lying the whole time about having a job.

Heartbroken, Jeanne returns home to live with her mother. One night, Jeanne draws three swastikas on her body, gives herself some minor cuts and cuts off part of her hair. She soon alleges to the police to have been brutally attacked by six hoodlums on the suburban RER train because they thought she was Jewish (which she is not). The incident becomes a huge national cause célèbre—though Louise quietly believes her daughter has fabricated the incident.


French Summary:

Il s'inspire de la pièce de Jean-Marie Besset, RER, traitant (notamment) d'un fait divers : le vendredi 9 juillet 2004, une jeune fille, Marie-Léonie Leblanc, déclare à la police avoir été victime d’une agression à caractère antisémite sur la ligne D du RER. Dès le lendemain soir, son témoignage provoque une vague d’indignation dans le milieu politique et associatif, et bénéficie d’une couverture médiatique conséquente. Trois jours plus tard, elle reconnaîtra avoir tout inventé

Une jeune fille fait du roller. Un jeune homme la suit et cherche à la séduire. Ils se revoient. Il fait de la lutte ; elle vit chez sa mère et cherche un travail. Elle n'a pas pu en trouver dans le cabinet d'un avocat que sa mère a connu. Un jour, Franck trouve un travail de gardien qui leur permet de vivre ensemble. Mais il se fait agresser et la vie de Jeanne bascule.
