OVID.tv – Now Streaming: Introducing Germany’s Leading Man Franz Rogowski

Franz Rogowski stars in TRANSIT, Christian Petzold’s brilliant and haunting modern-day adaptation of Anna Seghers’s 1942 novel, with a performance the New York Times calls “transfixing.”

IN THE AISLES finds Rogowski playing a man who takes a job working the night shift at a big box store. It is an affecting and bittersweet glimpse into the shared connections of a motley group of workers, which quietly celebrates the beauty in the day-to-day happenings at work.
