TRANSIT by CHRISTIAN PETZOLD Paris. Georg (Franz Rogowski) kann im letzten Moment seiner Verhaftung entgehen und gerät an die Papiere des toten Schriftstellers Weidel, dessen Identität er annimmt. Er flüchtet nach Südfrankreich, in der Hoffnung, dort auf politische Gesinnungsgenossen zu treffen. In Marseille lernt er Marie Weidel (Paula Beer) kennen, die dort seit Wochen auf ihren Mann wartet, nicht wissend, dass er nie wieder kommen wird. Die beiden Verlorenen beginnen eine leidenschaftliche Affäre. Aber für Marie steht im Gegensatz zu Georg fest: Sie will weg aus Marseille und in Südamerika ein neues Leben beginnen. Der Tag der Abfahrt des Schiffs naht, und Marie gibt die Hoffnung nicht auf, ihren Mann noch zu treffen. Von Minute zu Minute spitzt sich die politische Situation in Marseille weiter zu. Paul könnte den Platz von Maries Mann einnehmen, doch er zögert. Die Verwendung dieses Bildes ist für redaktionelle Zwecke honorarfrei.

Transit

Thursday 21st November 8pm

Like many others, German refugee Georg has fled Paris to escape the impending war. He has assumed the identity of a famous but deceased writer, and plans to use the man’s documentation to obtain a transit visa and immigrate to Mexico. But when Georg encounters the dead man’s wife Marie in Marseille, he finds himself dangerously drawn to her.

The latest film from renowned German director Christian Petzold (Barbara, Phoenix) is more than just an adaptation of Anna Seghers’ WWII-set novel. Although the story is anchored in the past, Petzold ambitiously relocates events to a contemporary setting, blurring the lines between past and present, and creating ambiguity for the viewer. The result is a thrilling and unique piece of work.

Quotes:

“An existential thriller about loss, trauma, statelessness and historical amnesia, Transit is the latest from the German director Christian Petzold … By turns intimate and expansive, Transit is a thrilling, at times harrowing labyrinth of a movie.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

 “The fascination of Transit is the way it keeps us uncertain what kind of film we’re watching, and uncertain of characters’ motives.” – Jonathan Romney, Film Comment Magazine

As the authorities intensify their campaign to catch her she recieves an update on a long forgotten adoption application- she has been matched with a four-year-old girl in the Ukraine.  Can she reconcile this with her crusade to protect her homeland from big industry or will her efforts destroy her chances of finally becoming a mother?

Quotes:

★★★★ “Woman at War is a huge showcase for Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir, who brings grit, determination, and quiet charisma to every scene. An engaging curiosity and an absolute joy.” – Tara Brady, The Irish Times.

 ★★★★a subversive romp that splendidly overturns action-movie cliches… presenting its life-or-death struggles in thrillingly offbeat fashion. – Mark Kermode, The Observer.

“Carried by a magnetic performance from Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir in a dual role (she plays both Halla and her identical twin sister Asa), Benedikt Erlingsson’s enjoyable follow up to Of Horses And Men is elevated by wryly idiosyncratic flourishes in its execution. ” – Wendy ide, Screendaily

 “Offbeat, poignant and visually exquisite. “- Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
