Synopsis

“Like a remake of Casablanca as written by Franz Kafka.” –IndieWire

After a fascist invasion of France, Georg poses as a dead author and attempts to flee to Mexico, but becomes trapped in Marseilles. There, he encounters a woman searching for her missing husband—the man whose identity he has assumed. A cinematic puzzlebox that unfolds neither entirely in the past nor in the modern era, Petzold’s surreal film offers a trenchant exploration of the plight of refugees.
