Berlin. Forty years from today. A roiling city of immigrants, where East crashes against West in a science-fiction Casablanca. Leo Beiler (Skarsgard), a mute bartender has one reason and one reason only for living here, and she's disappeared. But when Leo's search takes him deeper into the city's underbelly, an odd pair of American surgeons (led by Rudd) seem to be the only recurring clue, and Leo can't tell if they can help, or who he should fear most.
TRANSIT basiert auf dem 1942 in Marseille entstandenen gleichnamigen Roman von Anna Seghers. In einer atemberaubenden, fast schwebenden Begegnung des historischen Stoffs mit der Gegenwart des heutigen Marseille erzählt Christian Petzold die Geschichte einer großen, fast unmöglichen Liebe zwischen Flucht, Exil und der Sehnsucht nach einem Ort, der ein Zuhause ist.
In den Hauptrollen spielen Franz Rogowski (European Shooting Star 2018) und Paula Beer (nominiert zum Europäischen Filmpreis für ihre Hauptrolle in François Ozons FRANTZ).
tbd"Ich versuche, wertfrei den besten Schauspieler mit dem passendsten Profil auf eine Rolle zu besetzen. Eine ausgewogene Mischung aus Prominenz und Neuentdeckung oder ungewöhnlichen Besetzungen machen eine gute Besetzung aus. Der Wunsch der Sender nach einer prominenten Besetzung ist groß, aber die Vergangenheit hat auch gezeigt, dass ein guter Film nicht von der prominenten Besetzung abhängt und schlechte Filme nicht durch eine prominente Besetzung Quote bringen." (Simone Bär im Interview in Blickpunkt:Film )
