Presented by Goethe-Institut Hongkong, KINO/21 German Film Festival is back to the big screens this year. Our opening film KISS ME BEFORE IT BLOWS UP tells a love story against all odds, funny, heart-warming and thoughtful. HELLO AGAIN – A WEDDING A DAY is also about love with obstacles, and is our favourite romantic comedy of the year. Fans of suspense and action will get their thrills with FREE COUNTRY or TIDES, while cineastes should not miss BERLIN ALEXANDERPLATZ, GERMAN LESSON or the biopic about Germany’s most controversial filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder, ENFANT TERRIBLE. If you happen to meet a talking kangaroo in your neighbourhood who has just arrived from Berlin-Kreuzberg, you know: now you will be part of the KANGAROO CHRONICLES and experience lots of excitement.
