Fr 2017-06-30 Allied (2016) UK | USA. Action, Drama, Romance. Director: Robert Zemeckis. Stars: Brad Pitt, Marion Cotillard, Jared Harris. 2:05 h. Sound: DTS-HD MA 5.1 English. Slightly impressionistic and overdone, but still excellent story, directing, and acting. A.

In the middle of World War II, in turbulent 1942, a plane flies over Morocco and drops a Royal Canadian Air Force paratrooper who comes in to land on a drop zone, somewhere in the desert dunes outside Casablanca. Just in time before anyone notices him, the fearless Wing Commander Max Vatan gets in a car and heads to the town with orders to meet Parisian Marianne Beauséjour, a skillful member of the French Resistance.

On a mission to assassinate the German Ambassador in Casablanca, the two operatives must convince every one of their true feelings as a married couple, while in the background, they need to make the necessary preparations for the critical soirée. Without delay, after the success of this suicide mission, Max and Marianne flee together to England with plans on marrying and making a family, regardless of the war. Instead, heavy clouds of distrust and suspicion threaten their relationship, when Max receives a call from the Secret Service Division to inform him that his beloved wife is actually an impostor.

In disbelief, with a terrible task in his hands and crushed under a devastating dilemma, Max must find the courage to seek for answers in the perilous streets of bombarded London, regardless of the outcome. In the end, amid duty and love, who shall live and who shall die?

So 2017-07-02 The Help (2011) USA | India | United Arab Emirates. Drama. Stars: Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer. 2:15 h. Sound: 2.0 German/deutsch. A very good image of the time. Excellent acting. A.

Set in Mississippi during the 1960s, Skeeter (Stone) is a southern society girl who returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends' lives—and a Mississippi town—upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Aibileen (Davis), Skeeter's best friend's housekeeper, is the first to open up—to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community. Despite Skeeter's life-long friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories—and as it turns out, they have a lot to say. Along the way, unlikely friendships are forged and a new sisterhood emerges, but not before everyone in town has a thing or two to say themselves when they become unwittingly—and unwillingly—caught up in the changing times.

Di 2017-07-04 Love & Friendship Love and Friendship (2016) Ireland | France | Netherlands. Comedy, Drama, Romance. Writers: Whit Stillman, Jane Austen (based on her novella "Lady Susan"). Stars: Kate Beckinsale, Chloë Sevigny, Xavier Samuel. Kino 1: [Sound: DTS-HD MA 5.1 English], Kino 2: [Sound: 2.0 German/deutsch]. Witty, fast-paced, well acted.

Nur für Personal! Les femmes du 6e étage (2010) France. Comedy. Stars: Fabrice Luchini, Sandrine Kiberlain, Natalia Verbeke. 1:39 h. Sound: 2.0 German/deutsch. Pleasant romantic comedy, but the choice of actors and the entire story remain questionable. C.

Paris, in the early 1960s. Jean-Louis Joubert is a serious but uptight stockbroker, married to Suzanne, a starchy class-conscious woman and father of two arrogant teenage boys, currently in a boarding school.

The affluent man lives a steady yet boring life. At least until, due to fortuitous circumstances, Maria, the charming new maid at the service of Jean-Louis' family, makes him discover the servants' quarter on the sixth floor of the luxury building he owns and lives in.

There live a crowd of lively Spanish maids who will help Jean-Louis to open to a new civilization and a new approach of life. In their company—and more precisely in the company of beautiful Maria—Jean-Louis will gradually become another, better man.

Do 2017-07-06 Joan Baez - How Sweet the Sound (2009) Documentary. Stars: Joan Baez. 1:24 h. Sound: 2.0 German/deutsch. Very good collection of historic materials. Highly recommended if you have an interest in Joan Baez. B.

Das Gewissen einer Generation: Die politisch engagierte Folksängerin Joan Baez sang im Luftschutzbunker, während draußen die Bomben fielen. Aber sie ist auch eine der wichtigsten und bekanntesten Vertreterinnen der Folkmusik. Seltene Archivaufnahmen und sehr persönliche Interviews machen den Dokumentarfilm zu einem zugleich persönlichen und historischen Porträt.

In einem ersten umfassenden Dokumentarfilm über Joan Baez werden sowohl die Privatperson Baez als auch ihre Karriere, ihre Geschichte als Live- und Studiomusikerin und ihr bemerkenswerter Weg als Menschenrechtsaktivistin beleuchtet. Historische Aufnahmen zeigen Joan Baez bei ihrem umstrittenen Besuch in Nordvietnam, wo sie mit den Einwohnern von Hanoi während der heftigsten Luftangriffe des Kriegs betet, aber auch Martin Luther King Jr., der der inhaftierten Joan Baez einen Solidaritätsbesuch abstattet.

Musikalische Aufnahmen vom legendären Auftritt auf dem Newport Folk Festival 1959 oder eines frühen Auftritts im historischen Club 47 in Cambridge werden mit Interviews mit bekannten Persönlichkeiten wie David Crosby, Bob Dylan oder Reverend Jesse Jackson zu einer dichten Erzählung verwoben. Der Dokumentarfilm gibt in bisher nicht dagewesener Art und Weise Einblick in das Leben der Künstlerin und Aktivistin, die mit über 70 Jahren noch auf internationalen Tourneen unterwegs ist.

Holding a mysterious leather suitcase in his hand, Newt Scamander, a young activist wizard from England, visits New York while he is on his way to Arizona. Inside his expanding suitcase hides a wide array of diverse, magical creatures that exist among us, ranging from tiny, twig-like ones, to majestic and humongous ones. It is the middle of the 20s and times are troubled since the already fragile equilibrium of secrecy between the unseen world of wizards and the ordinary or "No-Maj"/"Muggle" people that the MACUSA Congress struggles to maintain, is at risk of being unsettled. In the meantime, the voices against wizardry keep growing with daily protests led by Mary Lou Barebone and fuelled by the increasing disasters ascribed to a dark wizard, Gellert Grindelwald. At the same time, by a twist of fate, Newt's precious suitcase will be switched with the identical one of an aspiring No-Maj/Muggle baker, Jacob Kowalski, while demoted Auror, Tina Goldstein, arrests Newt for being an unregistered wizard. To make matters worse, with the suitcase in the wrong hands, several creatures manage to escape to unknown directions. Before long, this situation will catch Senior Auror Percival Graves' attention who will target both Tina and Newt amid panic caused by an invisible, devastating and utterly unpredictable menace that still wreaks havoc in New York's 5th Avenue. Is there a hidden agenda behind Graves' intentions and ultimately, what will happen to the remaining magical creatures still loose in the streets?
