In Tranzit

Synopsis: In the winter of 1946, in Leningrad, a group of German prisoners of war are sent to a female transit camp by the cruel Russian Commander Pavlov. When they arrive, the Russian female soldiers show the hostility to the enemies that have killed their husbands, families and friends; only Dr. Natalia and the cook treat the prisoners with dignity. Natalia has an agreement with Commander Pavlov to keep her former lover, who was wounded on the head during the war and is slow, in the camp instead of sending him to an institution in Siberia. Pavlov assigns Natalia to disclose members of the SS infiltrated in the group of prisoners. Natalia and the prisoner Max feel a great attraction for each other while the prisoner Klaus tries to convince Max to denounce a couple of prisoners to satisfy the Russian. Natalia convinces the businessman Yakov to organize an orchestra with the prisoners; they are invited to play in a ball, where the lonely women that survived the war dance with the Germans. After t

Look up. Up!

Come on, get up!

Get up, I said!

Get up!


This is Captain Olga Alexandrova, Hello.

I want to speak to Colonel...




Colonel Pavlov!

Colonel Pavlov - what a pleasure.


...I've brought you some new medicine.

How are the headaches? Any better?

Olga's trying to find us

some more work to do.

So, while the camp is empty,

you should get some more rest.

She has to keep busy otherwise

she remembers too much.

Like all of us.



German men.

Looks like Comrade Pavlov is playing

one of his little jokes on us.

The gate was open.

The camp is empty, Captain.

It isn't now, Lieutenant.

There was 53.

Sign here.

You can always

make an official complaint.

It's bloody cold.

We need those jackets.

Not yet.

They're just a bunch of women -

They don't know what to do with us.

Let's just see what happens.


Don't shoot!

You killed my whole family, you f***ers!

You killed my whole family, you f***ers!

Quiet! Quiet.

The war is over.


This is for my sister!

This is for Sasha!

Get her off him!

Get up!

Get up! Walk!

Walk! Move on!



That was close.

You could have got us all killed.

He was a good guy.


Come on, get him up.

Those Russian b*tches!

What do you expect

after what we did to them?

Olga said 48 of them died

in a mine in Sverdlovsk.

We've to request more food.

Natalia you don't really think

we should look after them, do you?

They were starved at that mine!

That's what should

happen to them here!

Remember what

we had to eat in Leningrad?

Let them eat the same!

They're swine. They're used to it.




No, Schoenfelder.

Don't be cheeky!






That's Weber.

Corporal Weber.

Corporal Martin Heinrich Weber.

Oh for God's sake, Olga, call her off!

Vera, that's enough!







We've all had it.

Given what they fed us at the mine.

Men have got painful joints,

bleeding gums, loose teeth, scurvy...

Are you a doctor?


What is your name?


Max Bort.

What is wrong with him?

He took some shrapnel in the head.

They patched him up.

Seems harmless enough.

We're all harmless.

Thank you.

Get out of here before I report you!

The good doctor.

Thank you for permitting this.

Colonel Pavlov, such a pleasure!

The pleasure is all mine, Captain.

Thank you.

Though I have heard some

rather unfortunate rumours.

What is it, Colonel Pavlov?

A little bird told me that...

...your prisoners are having

the time of their lives.

Is that true,

Captain Olga Alexandrova?

Most definitely not, Colonel Pavlov.

Excellent! That's just what

I wanted to hear, Captain.

Now, I must go and see

the prisoners' medical reports.

Of course.


But I will see the doctor alone,

thank you.

Thank you, Comrade.

We could do with the provisions

we asked for, Comrade.

And some more medicine.

We won't survive the winter

with what you sent so far.

You underestimate yourselves,


How is Andrei?


I saw him out by the gate.

Doing his usual tricks.

He seemed better.

Though, perhaps it might be

best for both of you...

...if he were in a proper sanatorium.

No, I can look after him better here.

Well, I'm sure you can, Comrade.

Listen, let me share something

with you.

Intelligence tells us

that in this camp alone...

...there might be several

high-ranking war criminals...

...hiding amongst the prisoners.

The Party wants results.

So we'll be keeping the Germans here

until we achieve them.
