During WWII, Georg flees Germany and escapes to Marseille, where he tries to obtain one of the few scarce passages on a ship via an assumed identity. While waiting there, he meets other refugees, falls in love with the mysterious Marie, and befriends Driss, the son of a late comrade. Berlinale Silver Bear-winning director Petzold (Phoenix, 39th) transposes the characters from Anna Seghers’ eponymous novel – written during the renowned author’s wartime exile – to contemporary Marseille, where refugees from the past and present co-exist, and where their stories combine to create one eternal transit space. In Competition, Berlinale.
