HA NOI (VNS) — The Goethe Institute in Ha Noi will offer German films for public viewing at the end of this month, include a diverse mixture of successful German movies.

Some of the films to be shown were presented at the German Film Festival 2013 that were especially popular with Vietnamese audiences.

Oh Boy! will open the event on February 21. The story focuses on twenty-something Niko, strolling around the streets of Berlin as he attempts to figure out life.

The following day, the thriller Hell, a great success at the German Film Festival

2013, is expected to captivate local audiences. The same day also screens Hans

A scence in Oh Boy! which will open the event on February 21.

Christian Schmid's Home for the Weekend, a strong family drama told quietly

and subtly, and yet gripping from beginning to end.

The festival will screen Forget Me Not, a documentary about the mother of

director David Sieveking, who is losing her memory to Alzheimers Disease, and The Dreileben Trilogy, a very special work in which three directors film the same event, the story of a convicted sex offender escaping from police detention near the town of Dreileben, from three different perspectives.

A burning issue is touched upon in the film Color of the Ocean, as more refugees try to cross Europe's borders looking for better lives, though only a few make it. The film tells the story of some of these immigrants, traveling from Africa to the EU.

Further, the young audience can look forward to the most beautiful fairy tale

classics, including four fairy tales from the Grimm Brothers in the latest film adaptation, which will be presented on the first film weekend.

The films will be shown in either German, English, Spanish or French, with Vietnamese subtitles.

The festival runs from February 21 to March 1 at 56 – 58 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street.

Admission is free. Further information can be reached at (04) 37342251 and info@hanoi.goethe.org.— VNS
