#MoviesOmU: Movies in English and other original foreign languages in Leipzig, August 18-25 HOT HOT HOT!

Here’s our regular listing of films being shown in English and other original foreign languages (with labels such as OmU, OF and OV) at Leipzig cinemas for this movie week. We are now running the list each Tuesday. Although not dubbed, the movies often come with German subtitles, so you can still access the movie if you don’t know the original language but know some German.

All movies in English with German subs unless otherwise stated.

New this week:

Held over from last week:


I loved Amy Winehouse from the first time I heard her voice, which, incidentally, was on Stefan Raab. He had no idea what to do with her and asked really stupid questions. I went out and got her Frank album the next day and still play it to death.
