Alejandro Landes’s new fever-dream film, “Monos,” has critics raving about its deft mix of “Lord of the Flies,” “Apocalypse Now” and contemporary socio-political climate.
“In this barren wasteland, next to a corpse and leaning on a gigantic animal, the mature herder seduces the young cop with alcohol and cigarettes. And while this might suggest sinister intent or a moral point to hammer home, the embrace that the two share is oddly beautiful.”
A Leipzig-based Lithuanian viewer ponders the film: “[Animus Animalis] was very powerful and had a great variety of natural beauty in it. But some of its parts were truly irksome to watch or even think about.”
“Watching ‘Proof’ in a sold out venue had its merits in terms of entertainment and cultural experience. But was the play any good and will it be worth attending next Saturday? You’ll find out here.”
A theatre play that won both the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play is coming to Leipzig. Brace yourself for a delightful night with great acting and existential questions – “Proof” is here.
“You give a little love, and it all comes back to you.” Students and staff from Leipzig International School staged Bugsy Malone, a gangster comedy with an international twist, at Schaubühne Lindenfels – earning a rave review from our guest contributor.
