This is a 1966 French crime drama written and directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet.
The title refers to the Trans Europ Express, a former international rail network in Europe.
Although it seems like a crime eroticism flick, the whole story appears quite silly and foolish---far from a mystery, let alone a thriller.
Erotic, probably NOT! It doesn't appear sexy at all because all the actors seem amateurish.
Forty minutes into this flick, I decided to quit.
It is one of the worst films I've seen so far.

Trans Europ-Express (an actual train), the second film by novelist/director Alain Robbe-Grillet, may be the first film with much of the footage shot on an actual moving train. The film includes Robbe-Grillet and associates developing the concept of a story about a dealer of drugs or diamonds. The film becomes comedic as Robbe-Grillet and associates keep changing the story, which then causes Trintignant to begin to be confused by which way the story seems to be going. Even when he chains or ties a woman to a hotel bed, we do not take it seriously, as we know it is something being made up each moment by Robbe-Grillet and his associates.
