The Goethe Institute has announced its Spring Cinema line-up, which features 10 movies for the 10 weeks February 15 to April 26 that will screen at its facilities at 56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street in Hanoi.

Each Wednesday at 7pm, the Institute will show a German movie that was particularly popular among local audiences over the past few years.

The mixture of movies has it all, says the Institute, starting off the program on February 15 with the fastmoving and visually striking cyber thriller Who Am I – No System Is Safe.

In the animation film Animals United – Adventure in Africa, the animals decide it’s about time to stop the humans from destroying the planet. Daniel is going through a catastrophe of a very different sort when he tries to turn himself into a Macho Man.

In For No Eyes Only, Sam’s webcam hacking gets him in serious trouble. The following week, the teenage comedy Single by Contract will boost your mood.

On April 5, the comedy Fack Ju Göhte tells the story of nasty students and an exceptional teacher with a criminal secret. In only one shot, Victoria traces the disturbing experiences of a group of young people in Berlin.

Last year, Institute Facebook followers voted for the best movies featured at the German film festival in Vietnam 2016 and, as promised, the three favourites are on this year’s line-up.

The three most popular movies were Fortune Favors the Brave, a story about an unusual friendship between three girls, Head Full of Honey, the final adventure of Tilda and her grandfather, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and Offline – Are You Ready for the Next Level, an adventure movie in which reality and computer games mix up.
