"Set in a present-day Marseille occupied by phantoms from a wartime past, Transit is Christian Petzold’s follow-up to his sublime period pieces Barbara and Phoenix. Echoes of Casablanca, Kafka and Hitchcock reverberate around this coolly existential love story, which is also very much its own, unique thing: a haunting daylight noir whose characters, refugees seeking safe passage from a fascist threat, bewitch from the first frame to the last." — Tim Wong
