Trans-Europ-Express is a 1966 film written and directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet and starring Jean-Louis Trintignant and Marie-France Pisier. The title refers to the Trans Europ Express, a former international rail network in Europe.

The film has been variously described as an erotic thriller, a nonplot mystery, and a film-within-a-film. The soundtrack are bits from La traviata with additional music by Michel Fano.

Photography by Willy Kurant, filming locations include Paris and Antwerp (the Port of Antwerp, the south, Pelikaanstraat).
