In the conclusion to our Top 10 Movies of 2019, our film writer Heiner looks at the final five entries. Including major Oscar contenders, smaller indie fare and the best film of the year and perhaps the decade.
The Oscar nominations come out Monday. How many of our film critic’s picks will have made it to the list? How many of these have you watched so far?
Here’s our weekly listing of films being shown in their original language versions in Leipzig (meaning they’re not dubbed).
In the high vulnerability of body and mind of his last days, totally believable with McKellen’s acting, I’ll dare say Sherlock Holmes has never appeared so human.
The force is strong in Leipzig. StarWars: The Force Awakens, finally in theaters Dec. 17th, will be playing in its original English version at both Passage Kinos and Cineplex this movie week, with various showtimes. Here’s the rundown.
The film festivals featuring films in the original this week take us, respectively, to China (chai.China, put on by the local Confucius Institute and die naTo); France and Latin America for one more day, the 25th of November (21. Französische Filmtage and 6. Latinamerikanische Tage); the world of a legendary French director (Retrospektive Louis Malle at Schaubühne Lindenfels, partly connected to the French film fest); and some of the secrets of the soul (die NaTo’s Mythos Freiheit // 3: SEELE).
