KINO is back, in the theatre and on the big screen! We show a selection of the best and most successful German films of 2020/21.
 
Our opening film KISS ME BEFORE IT BLOWS UP tells a love story against all odds, funny, warm-hearted and thoughtful. HELLO AGAIN – A WEDDING A DAY is also about love with obstacles, our favorite rom com of the year. Fans of suspense and action will get their thrills with FREE COUNTRY or TIDES, while cineastes shouldn't miss BERLIN ALEXANDERPLATZ, GERMAN LESSON or the biopic about Germany's most controversial filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder, ENFANT TERRIBLE. And if you happen to meet a talking kangaroo in your neighborhood who has just arrived from Berlin-Kreuzberg, you know: now you will be part of the KANGAROO CHRONICLES and experience lots of excitement...
 
We look forward to welcoming you to KINO/21 - there's a lot to see!
