“People, do you know the blend of happiness and surprise after trying out something completely new and seeing that something work out well immediately? This blog post is about a recent ‘something’ like that and at the same time about music, spontaneity, friends and one of my favourite venues in Leipzig.”
Here’s our regular listing of films being shown in English and other original foreign languages at Leipzig cinemas for this movie week. My recommendation this time around is the figuratively and at times literally dizzying movie Victoria. It’s mostly in English, shot in one take in real time in Berlin, and quite a cinematic achievement, in my opinion, packing the gamut of emotions within a mere two hours. I’d say avoid reading reviews about it, because it’s worth the surprise. Also on this week is the highly-rated documentary on Amy Winehouse, which I’m excited about.
Our LoveLy love columnist and I attended the LivelyriX open-air poetry slam at Leipzig’s Panometer last week and had a very fun time; she wrote about it, I photographed, and you can see the result of our collaboration here.
There are a lot more live music events going on in Leipzig this weekend, and I don’t pretend to know or remember them all, but can give you some pointers regarding things that are brought to my attention. If you know of any other events you’d like to share, music-related or otherwise, please let us know via http://www.Facebook.com/leipglo.
The long winding road of travel is filled with humor. And humor sells.
The whole shebang (a stop on the “Ben & Jerry’s Movie Nights” tour) starts at 7 p.m. at Werk 2 in Connewitz. The movie showing itself begins when the sun goes down, around 10 p.m. And oh, the movie? (500) Days of Summer.
