#MoviesOmU: Movies in English and other original foreign languages in Leipzig, September 8-15

in Movies

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. My movie recommendation: OMG! Art Film Festival. Just i time because the drop from 33° to 16° has me wanting to be indoors! Plot summaries either from IMDB or written by me.

New this week (at least in the original version):
