At the beginning of the New Year the Goethe-Institut Hanoi presents a German film week from the 11th of January to the 18h of January, 2013. It shows a colorful mixture of successful German films of the recent years, including some films, which were already presented on the German Film Festival 2012 and were well received from the Vietnamese audience. So anyone who missed the drama "When we leave," about a young woman between German and Turkish culture, the touching story of "Three fourth moon" and the comedy "Men in the City 2", has now a second chance.

The documentary “Under Snow” by Ulrike Ottinger is the opening film of the film week and takes the viewer into the archaic world of a mountain village in Japan. Followed by “Barbara”, the most recent film of director Christian Petzold, which tells the story about a young doctor in the DDR and depicts the conflict between staying and leaving. Also the documentary "This is ain`t California" plays in the DDR and is about a clique of friends, who established the skateboarding in East Germany. "Vincent wants to sea" is an award winning, unusual road movie about the Tourette's syndrome suffering Vincent, who starts a journey to the sea, to spread the ashes of his recently deceased mother. At the screening of „Three Fourths Moon“, Ms. Carmen Oberhofer of German Film Distributor Majestic, who was in charge of the public relations and marketing for the film, will be giving an introduction, talking about the filming and answering questions of the audience.Because of the big success and the high demand at the German Film Festival 2012 we end the film week with the hit comedy “Men in the City 2”.

Furthermore, the young audience could look forward to the most beautiful fairy tale classics: Four fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm in the latest film adaption, which will be presented on the first film weekend.
