Summary, etc.:
Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film, LA FEMME ET LE TGV is about a lonely woman who kept a secret routine every morning and evening -- for years, she's been waving at the express train that passes by her house. Inspired by true events and starring legendary actress Jane Birkin, Elise finds a letter from the train conductor in her garden and her lonely life is turned upside down. She engages in a promising correspondence through poetic and thoughtful letters where the two anonymous writers share their worlds with each other. But Elise's fairytale is cut short when the train line permanently detours for a shorter route to Paris. Not willing to do without her daily delight, Elise prompts a daring escape from her comfort zone and sets out to find the train conductor.
