Critic Reviews for Transit
The dreamlike quality to the narrative just adds to the general state of confusion. It's a radical concept and it mostly works.
...the characters' very realistic reactions to the increasingly encroaching violence means their stories hit home.
Anyone who appreciates cinema's underrated capacity to confound-to really sabotage our understanding of what's transpiring -will get a rush from the way Petzold constantly shifts the ground underneath our feet.
Petzold commits to the premise's melodrama without relying upon high-key emotion.
With Transit, director Christian Petzold creates a Second World War adventure that is not a sentimental costume drama and a contemporary political parable that is not a didactic sermon -- and produces a highly entertaining film into the bargain.
