Description

In Christian Petzolds (Barbara, Phoenix) haunting modern-day adaptation of Anna Segherss 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. As German troops begin to rapidly advance on Paris, he delves into the delicate and complex culture of the refugee community, becoming tangled in the lives of a young mother and son and falling for a mysterious woman named Marie (Paula Beer). Making use of the uncanny parallels between historical fact and present-day, Petzold tells the story of a great love amid escape, exile and a longing for a place to call home.

“Christian Petzold is a gifted director…but here he mistakes narrative complexity for dramatic rigour. The film didn't need the existential ponderings. The cake was rich enough without the icing.” -Sydney Morning Herald

“Maybe the place is the point – the story notes that Marseilles is a port city, and "ports are places where stories are told.” Stories of survival and escape, but more often, of frustration and heartbreak." - San Diego Reader
