#MoviesOmU: Movies in English and other original foreign languages in Leipzig, November 4-11

in Culture / Entertainment/Leipzig/Movies

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.

Our highlights this week are the OmU opening of the new James Bond movie, Spectre, and separately, the 6th edition of the “Latin American Days” movie fest, with movies playing in the original Portuguese and Spanish with German subtitles at Schaubühne Lindenfels this movie week. I might be found there at some point!

What the labels mean: OmU – Original with German subtitles; OmeU – Original with English subtitles; OF – Original film; OV – Original version; Im Original – In the original and often 3D.

“The ocean contains the history of all humanity. The sea holds all the voices of the earth and those that come from outer space. Water receives impetus from the stars and transmits it to living creatures. Water, the longest border in Chile, also holds the secret of two mysterious buttons which were found on its ocean floor. Chile, with its 2,670 miles of coastline and the largest archipelago in the world, presents a supernatural landscape. In it are volcanoes, mountains and glaciers. In it are the voices of the Patagonian Indigenous people, the first English sailors and also those of its political prisoners. Some say that water has memory. This film shows that it also has a voice.” MORE FROM IMDB

Cinémathèque in der naTo:

Tue 10.11 @ 20:00 – FREE ENTRY

“A place: Theresienstadt. A unique place of propaganda which Adolf Eichmann called the “model ghetto”, designed to mislead the world and Jewish people regarding its real nature, to be the last step before the gas chamber. A man: Benjamin Murmelstein, last president of the Theresienstadt Jewish Council, a fallen hero condemned to exile, who was forced to negotiate day after day from 1938 until the end of the war with Eichmann, to whose trial Murmelstein wasn’t even called to testify. Even though he was without a doubt the one who knew the Nazi executioner best. More than twenty-five years after Shoah, Claude Lanzmann’s new film reveals a little-known yet fundamental aspect of the Holocaust, and sheds light on the origins of the “Final Solution” like never before.” MORE FROM IMDB

  • Tristia – Eine Schwarzmeer-Odyssee  – Documentary | Germany 2014 | Director: Stanislaw Mucha | Russian/ Ukrainian/Turkish/Bulgarian/Romanian, OmU

Cinémathèque in der naTo:

Wed 04.11 @ 19:30

“A remarkable travelogue from a trip around the Black Sea: along its shores, lined by the boundaries of six states, and through bizarre seaside resorts. More than the tourist industry or political problems, the film focuses on solitary statues, decaying architectural monuments, and the personal stories of the local people. From each stop on their journey, the filmmakers send a series of stylized video postcards with the playfulness of staged scenes, set against the backdrop of the sea. In this cinematic answer to Ovid’s Black Sea lamentations, that ancient text receives new qualities that tell us about a place that is accursedly beautiful but also beautifully cursed.”  MORE FROM IMDB

“‘Hockney’ is the definitive exploration of one of the most significant artists of his generation. For the first time, David Hockney has given access to his personal archive of photographs and film, resulting in an unparalleled visual diary of a long life… His is a long-term one-man campaign against the pessimism of the world, mastering new media – whether acrylic paint or iPad digits – in the search for a picture adequate to his sense of what it is to be alive.” MORE FROM BBC
