Plot:

Trust the director of Phoenix and Barbara to re-imagine a WWII romantic intrigue into something unsettlingly contemporary and resonant. With occupying forces closing in, a German refugee (Franz Rogowski) assumes a dead writer’s identity and flees to Marseille in hopes of sailing to safety. However, entanglements with the writer’s widow (Paula Beer) and a young boy disrupt his plans. Drawing equally from Casablanca and current affairs, Transit is a fascinating, enigmatic, utterly captivating movie.
