Description: Elizabeth, Empress of Austria, was an eccentric woman (she refused to be photographed after the age of 30) with a philosophical bent and a fondness for world travel; this documentary offers a glimpse into Elizabeth's thoughts and statements as she traveled through Egypt during two separate visits to that nation, first in 1885 and later in 1891. Director Ruth Beckermann combines direct quotes from Elizabeth with speculation on her ideas and motivations as her camera follows the same paths Elizabeth traveled over a century before. Ein Fluchtiger Zug Nach Dem Orient was screened in competition at the 2000 Karlovy Vary Film Festival.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
