#MoviesOmU: Movies in English and other original foreign languages in Leipzig, October 7-14

in Culture / Entertainment/Leipzig/Movies by

Here’s our regular listing of films being shown in English and other original foreign languages, and sometimes German with foreign partnerships, at Leipzig cinemas for this movie week. Although not dubbed, the movies often come with German or even English subtitles, so you might still be able to access the film if you don’t know the language being spoken. This week I wrote my first proper movie review for this Web site, check it out if you care to! The movie in question, “Que Horas Ela Volta?” is definitely worth seeing, in my opinion, and the good news is that you still have several chances to catch it in Leipzig. From now on, I will try to write movie reviews more or less regularly for features you can see in town. 

So, to start with, since I mentioned it…
