With actors Frank Rogowski and Paul Beer.
Premier German auteur Christian Petzold’s adaptation of the 1942 Anna Seghers’s novel follows Georg (Rogowski), a young Jewish man who flees the Nazis to France with the identity and papers of a dead author, only to meet and fall in love a woman searching for her missing husband — the very man Georg is pretending to be. Petzold keeps the historical narrative of Seghers’s novel but refuses any period piece trappings, opting instead for modern dress and sets.
