Franz Rogowski stars in "Transit," a devastating drama from writer/director Christian Petzold, based on a World War II novel by Anna Seghers. Petzold transposes the action to the present day, where an all-too realistic wave of fascism has overtaken Europe, and stories of mistaken identity and adultery overlap in Marseilles, where every one trying to flee France has taken up (hopefully temporary) residence.
In his review of "Transit" at The Wrap, William Bibbiani says Christian Petzold's film "always feels seductively dangerous, as though making it might have been an act of political defiance, and watching it could, with only a few horrible changes to our political climate, be against the law."
