'Man From the Train's' Hallyday, Rochefort feted

They co-star in Patrice Leconte’s “The Man From the Train,” which was well received when it screened in competition earlier in the evening at the 59th Venice Intl. Film Festival.

“But they became brothers in arms, each other’s opposite and unconscious twin.”
