KINO returns with a selection of the best and most successful films of German cinema in 2018/ 2019: exciting stories, big emotions and powerful images. We look forward to welcoming you to KINO - there is so much to see!

Our opening film BALLOON tells the story of a dramatic escape from the GDR, a ten years before the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. Are you a fan of suspense? Then you should not miss THE COLLINI CASE and THE MOVER. The film A REGULAR WOMAN is based on a true story: The "honor killing" of the young Turkish woman in Berlin shook the German public. Do you love buddy-comedies? Then you will enjoy SWEETHEARTS and 25 Km/h. And the journey of the two unequal friends in ROADS shows that sometimes you have to travel very far to find out the truth. In CHRIS THE SWISS, a dangerous search for clues leads back to the Balkan war of the 90s, whose violence is made palpable with threatening black-and-white animations, an award-winning documentary thriller from Switzerland. With six awards, GUNDERMANN is the absolute winner of this year's German Film Award - come and see it at KINO! Let yourself be surprised and find your favourite film in KINO/19.
