German auteur Christian Petzold (Phoenix) delivers a haunting modern-dress WWII thriller that unfolds in 1940 Nazi-occupied France and the present simultaneously. Adapted from Anna Seghers’s gut-wrenching 1942 novel, this noir-ish prism of reversals and ironies casts today’s refugee crisis in an entirely new light.

Having escaped two concentration camps, Georg assumes the identity of a dead author but is still stuck in Marseilles, refugees from across time cross paths and all of their stories combine to create one eternal transit space. As he becomes enmeshed in the migrants’ threadbare community, Georg falls for the mysterious Marie—whose husband is the very man he’s impersonating.

D: Christian Petzold, Germany, subtitled, 2019, 1h41m
