TRANSIT

TRANSIT

Christian Petzold · Germany/France · 2019 · 102 mins · PG
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

With occupying forces closing in, a haunted refugee (Franz Rogowski) assumes a dead writer’s identity--and transit papers--and flees to Marseille in hopes of sailing to safety. However, he soon becomes entangled in the lives of those who’ve been left behind, including the widow (Paula Beer) of the man he's posing as. Christian Petzold (“Phoenix”) masterfully conjures a noir-tinged romantic thriller that’s equally indebted to “Casablanca” and current affairs. --VIFF

With “Transit,” Christian Petzold creates a Second World War adventure and a contemporary political parable–-and produces a highly entertaining film into the bargain. The film makes the link between wartime fascism and current anti-refugee sentiment quietly explicit and highly effective. FOUR STARS! –Globe and Mail
"Anyone who appreciates cinema's underrated capacity to confound-to really sabotage our understanding of what's transpiring -will get a rush from the way Petzold constantly shifts the ground underneath our feet." AV Club
"...the characters' very realistic reactions to the increasingly encroaching violence means their stories hit home." Chicago Reader
Cast Franz Rogowski, Paula Beer, Godehard Giese
