Synopsis

As a modern-day Paris is invaded by foreign troops, German refugee Georg flees to Marseille assuming the identity of a deceased writer. There he delves into the delicate culture of the refugee community, becomes involved in the lives of a mother and son, and meets the writer’s enigmatic wife Marie.

Our take

Christian Petzold (Barbara) boldly transforms Anna Seghers’ WW2 novel into a haunting period film set in an ambiguous present. A stirring melodrama of love during oppression, Transit is every bit as scintillating as Casablanca, thanks in part to the outstanding duo of Franz Rogowski and Paula Beer.
