Tatjana dreams of escaping St Petersburg, and thinks she's found a man that can take her away. Meanwhile in Mexico City, Champinon struggles to find himself a girlfriend. In Los Angeles, Asha discovers her fiancé has been cheating on her, and in Kenya, Matthew struggles to break into Nairobi's burgeoning hip hop culture. The cast of characters react to the building pressure to create TRANSIT: Tatjana leaves Russia for Mexico City in search of her lover, and Asha for Nairobi to shoot a film for her graduation project. In their new locations our characters meet and our four stories become two when Tatjana finds Champinon and Asha finds Matthew. Love follows but their relationships are not as simple as they first appear, as we discover that all their stories are interlinked. Written by Niall MacCormick

19 December 2007 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

„Transit" deals with Aids, a still cureless low immunity disease, but an audience that doesn't know this beforehand, won't discover this fact until the very last ten minutes. This is a very effective dramaturgic dodge, because it is also the way that Aids spreads. You might not notice it, you might be careless, but you still can be infected. At least in the rich countries, many people get infected because they think it won't happen to them anyway. I think, it was also a good decision from director Niall MacCormick and his co-writer Murilo Pasta not to focus on the so-called high risk groups like gays or drug users, because the important message is that everybody can get infected. And that is also what "Transit" is eventually, a message movie. From an artistic point of view I would say not everything is felicitous. Some of the story lines are just totally implausible and also the acting isn't top-notch. And sadly, too many filmmakers fall for the trick thinking, that this "Babel"-like structure adds any meaning to their work.
