Zenzational love story
IN TRANZIT (Universal, cert 15, £14.99)
IT’S amazing how after all these years, little known real life World War Two events still inspire films. This one is set in a snowbound Soviet POW camp with a sadistic commander in Pavlov (John Malkovitch), but the guards are all female. Vera Farmiga plays Natalia, a compassionate camp doctor whose mentally unstable husband is allowed to work at the camp so as she can monitor him. When a group of male German prisoners arrive, and it is suspected some may be SS officers trying to escape trial for war crimes, the dynamic structure of relationships is changed. The result is an intense and often moving drama which also demonstrates that love can be found in the most unlikely of places.
