02 Information
This is a six episode TV series co produced by France, Italy, Switzerland, and Sweden, each consisting of six different short films. Taking the famous Orient Express across Europe as the carrier, the European history from World War I to World War II as the background, the various countries, nationalities, and social systems on the European continent as the theme, and the female actors as the center, it roughly depicts one complex humanistic pattern after another. Short and profound. Morricone's broad range of talented soundtracks, coupled with Edda Dell'Orso's timeless singing voice (LA Train), seem to lead people from the grand "Once Upon a Time in the West" to the pocket version of the "Once Upon A Time in the European". The video currently provided on this website is its third episode, downloaded based on information provided by Korean enthusiast Dr. Lee Jinweon. The quality of the audio subtitles obtained through the paid HY website is acceptable. It should not be too difficult for you to watch this film after carefully reading the plot materials below

Plot 3: (S1E03) In the 1920s, Italy was under the dark rule of fascism. In April 1926, Mussolini was attempted to assassinate, and the black shirt army arrested people everywhere. The domestic situation in Italy was severe. At this time, Professor Peter Charlotte of the University of London, England, paid a visit to Venice by the Orient Express for academic research. When Cooper Antonella, a student of Italian descent who was accompanying him as a temporary assistant, visited her Italian brother Marco, he found out that Marco was being pursued for his involvement in the anti fascist movement. Although Professor Charlotte sought help from several of his old friends (consuls, police chief) for this, they were all rejected. Finally, Marco was killed by the Black Shirt Army during the pursuit (compiled by this website)

02(Original EN)A six-part French tv series first broadcast in 1979, each episode of Orient Express focuses on a different tale of a journey on the legendary train; each one is set between the outbreak of the First World War and the outbreak of the Second.  Ennio Morricone provided the music.  Morricone’s score is everything you might imagine – at times romantic, at times suspenseful, always evocative.  The score is essentially built from two themes, as one may discern from the tracklisting – 18 of the 19 tracks are called either “Che Senso Ha” or “Orient Express”.  But that’s a little misleading – this isn’t one of those Morricone albums where the same piece of music is repeated over and over again.  He sends the first theme through many different variations, and some of the tracks labelled “Orient Express” seem to have no relationship with each other at all.
They’re both gorgeous themes.  “Che Senso Ha” is given a couple of vocal arrangements (sung by Maria Rigel Tonini); a few Dixieland-style arrangements (yes, really); but most Morricone enthusiasts will take most pleasure from the stunning arrangements for solo piano and the piece de resistance, the orchestral version which opens the album.  The other theme, “Orient Express”, is also stunning in its orchestral arrangement.  Some of the later pieces which share its name are actually ear-splitting pieces of suspense music, extraordinarily unsettling – and, as with most such Morricone, a hard slog indeed for the listener.  Finally, there’s “Le Train”, a beautiful theme (with a slight pop beat) given the unmistakable Edda dell’Orso treatment.  It’s not a classic piece of Morricone/dell’Orso, but it is of course worth hearing – many times!  This 2004 CD marked the first time anything apart from “Le Train” and an orchestral arrangement of the “Orient Express” theme had been released at all; and the prettiness of the melodic material makes it well worth seeking out (Here)
