From the director of PHOENIX and BARBARA

As fascism spreads, German refugee Georg flees to Marseille and assumes the identity of the dead writer whose transit papers he is carrying.   Adapted from a 1942 novel, director Christian Petzold shifts the original story to the present, blurring periods to create a Kafkaesque drama and a warning that when it comes to people without country fleeing for their lives, this is not just the past, it is the present and the future.

“Extraordinary!   Conceptually daring.” – Guy Lodge, Variety

“Moody, beguiling, formally bold.   Turns history into an existential maze from
which few seem destined to escape.”
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“Urgent and slyly brilliant.   Like a remake of Casablanca as written by Franz Kafka.” – David Ehrlich, IndieWire

“A stunning work.” – Vikram Murthi, RogerEbert.com

Language: German, French (English subtitles)
