A young man fleeing the camps in Nazi Germany finds himself in possession of papers that will allow him to go to Mexico. All he needs to do is impersonate the dead man. His efforts take him to Marseille, where he meets the man’s wife and a convoluted tale unfolds. With excellent acting, and an intense and engaging script, Transit hooks us from the beginning. The director weaves his wartime story with modern cars and buildings in a subtle expression of how the past overlays the present.
