Spy movie, strangulation on a train

This is a spy/drama movie, I think it’s in American english but is set in Europe. Probably 80’s or early 90’s, definitely color. I saw it in the late 90’s to early 2000’s.  Involves one mid-level actor, I’m pretty sure he’s been in several movies, but is not a superstar. He’s probably 40 in the movie, so would be ~60-70 now. White guy, fairly thin, average height, short semi-curly brown hair I think.

There is a small villa/house in the countryside of England probably. White with brown shutters maybe. Main character either lives there or is hiding out for a while, but seems he owns the place.

The main character is a spy, or at least thinks he’s a spy. I vaguely remember him being delusional about that and he’s just a regular guy gone crazy (but fully functional still), but that might be totally off.

The scene I remember best: Main guy and another are on a moving passenger train, and strangle someone else, and put the dead person into the bathroom. I think the main character was convincing the other guy to kill him, but he had issues with it, so the main character does the strangling. Not sure though.

Thanks

  1. Nope. In ‘Eye of the Needle’ he uses a stiletto(hence the name ‘Needle’), and nobody helps him with any of his kills.

    1. Yeah that’s not it. The actor is probably a Donald Sutherland category actor, maybe a bit less unknown. But not him unfortunately. Thanks so far though

Got something to say?
