In this brilliant and haunting modern-day adaptation of Anna Seghers's 1942 novel, Transit Visa, Georg, a German refugee (Franz Rogowski), flees to Marseille assuming the identity of a recently deceased writer whose papers he is carrying. There he delves into the delicate and complex culture of the refugee community, becoming enmeshed in the lives of a young mother and son and falling for a mysterious woman named Marie (Paula Beer). Directed by Christian Petzold (Phoenix).
"By turns intimate and expansive, Transit is a thrilling, at times harrowing labyrinth of a movie." (Manohla Dargis, New York Times)
"Like Casablanca written by Kafka." (Indiewire)
