Franz Rogowski in Official US Trailer for Christian Petzold's 'Transit'
"You have three weeks until your ship sails." Music Box Film has debuted an official US trailer for an indie drama from Germany titled Transit, which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival last year. It's the latest from acclaimed German filmmaker Christian Petzold (Jerichow, Barbara, Phoenix) and received glowing reviews playing at numerous major festivals throughout last year, including the Toronto and New York Film Festivals. Franz Rogowski stars a man named Georg fleeing Germany, who ends up stuck in Marseille, encountering others trying to escape and get out of Europe; they all need transit papers for safe passage. The full cast includes Paula Beer, Godehard Giese, Lilien Batman, Maryam Zaree, Barbara Auer, and Matthias Brandt. I saw this at Berlinale and it's a great film, commenting on contemporary issues (set in present day) borrowing a story from WWII times - read my festival review. Highly recommended viewing. ›››
