Critic Reviews for Transit
Christian Petzold is a gifted director...but here he mistakes narrative complexity for dramatic rigour. The film didn't need the existential ponderings. The cake was rich enough without the icing.
Maybe the place is the point - the story notes that Marseilles is a port city, and "ports are places where stories are told." Stories of survival and escape, but more often, of frustration and heartbreak.
Transit could have been a comedy that Camus might appreciate...The movie haunts, but more in theory than in fact.
Christian Petzold's "Transit" is a fascinating paradox: an anti-romantic romance. It may have the surface trappings of a "Casablanca," but it's closer to "Vertigo."
