A melancholy thriller of love and limbo which expertly blends historical fact with a contemporary milieu. As fascism spreads through Europe, German refugee Georg flees to Marseille and assumes the identity of a 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. Starring Franz Rogowski, Godehard Giese and Paula Beer (Bad Banks). Nominated for the Golden Berlin Bear for Best Film at Berlin International Film Festival 2018.
