DEU | 2018 | dir. Christian Petzold, with Franz Rogowski, Paula Beer

The German troops are just outside Paris, a ‘cleansing’ of undesired people is underway. Assuming the identity of a dead author, Georg manages to escape to Marseille and obtain one of the few scarce visas and passages on a ship to Mexico. Based on Anna Seghers’ eponymous novel and set in contemporary France where refugees from the past meet refugees from today, Transit is a stark reminder of the perils of fascism.
