Transit - Sunday Cinema

December 2 4:30 to 6:15 pm

A young man fleeing Nazi Germany finds himself in possession of papers that will allow him to flee Europe. All he needs is to impersonate a dead man. His efforts take him to Marseille where he meets a woman, who turns out to be the dead man's wife, and a convoluted tale unfolds. Intense and engaging, with excellent acting, the director weaves his old war-time story with modern cars and buildings in a subtle expression of how the past overlays the present.

Based on a novel by German novelist Anna Seghers during her experiences as an exile during the Second World War.
