In Christian Petzold’s brilliant and haunting modern-day adaptation of Anna Seghers’s 1942 novel, Transit Visa, Georg, a German refugee (Franz Rogowski, Happy End), flees to Marseille assuming the identity of a recently deceased writer whose papers he is carrying.

There he delves into the delicate and complex culture of the refugee community, becoming enmeshed in the lives of a young mother and son and falling for a mysterious woman named Marie (Paula Beer, Frantz).

Co-presented by Embassy of Germany Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe

  • Christian Petzold creates a Second World War adventure that is not a sentimental costume drama and a contemporary political parable that is not a didactic sermon – and produces a highly entertaining film into the bargain.Globe and Mail
