Transit  (12A)

Thrilling drama about a refugee who takes on the identity of a dead author.

As fascism spreads, German refugee Georg (Franz Rogowski) flees to Marseille and assumes the identity of the dead writer whose transit papers he is carrying. Living among refugees from around the world, Georg falls for Marie (Paula Beer), a mysterious woman searching for her husband–the man whose identity he has stolen.

Adapted from Anna Segher’s 1942 novel, TRANSIT transposes the original story to the present, blurring periods to create a timeless exploration of the plight of displaced people.

“Provocative, even startling, and more edifying than you might expect” Wall Street Journal

“The strangeness of this story will live in your bloodstream like a virus“ The Guardian
