What is on at Burg Kino this week (7 March - 13 March)

This week at the Burg Kino on the Opernring the following films are showing:

The Grand Budapest Hotel: The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The latest from writer and director Wes Anderson and featuring a mega super cast including Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Saoirse Ronan, Edward Norton, and William Dafoe.

American Hustle: A con man, Irving Rosenfeld, along with his seductive British partner, Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for a wild FBI agent, Richie DiMaso. DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia. Features 70s flares, plunging necklines and bouffant hair (for everyone).

The Wolf of Wall Street: The latest from director Martin Scorsese. Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio), from his rise to a wealthy stockbroker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title – "The Wolf of Wall Street.

12 years a Slave: is based on the true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) will forever alter his life.

The Third Man: The Third Man: In 1946 in a war-torn Vienna, divided into four zones of occupation, the American writer of westerns Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) attends the funeral of his friend Harry Lime (Orson Welles), but is he really dead?

Blue Jasmine: Jasmine lives in New York and is married to a wealthy businessman Hal. Everything is going great until you discover that Hal is actually a crook. This discovery leads to the financial ruin of the family and the psychological breakdown of Jasmine, who decided to move from her sister in San Francisco.

Gravity: The brilliant Dr. Ryan Stone is on her first space mission, while the astronaut Matt Kovalsky is the last flight before retirement. What for them was to be a routine space walk turns into a catastrophe. The shuttle is destroyed and they are finding themselves in the silence of the universe. Floating in darkness and without any interaction with the Earth have apparently no chance of surviving because oxygen is running out. Perhaps the only way to hope to get home is to delve into the infinite space.

Monuments Men: An unlikely World War II platoon is tasked to rescue art masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their owners. Written, directed and starring George Clooney. Impressive cast including Matt Damon, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett, and Bill Murray.

Mandela: A chronicle of Nelson Mandela's life journey from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected president of South Africa. Starring Idris Elba and Naomie Harris.

Nebraska: After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father thinks he's struck it rich, and wrangles his son into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.

Inside Llewin Davis: follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles-some of them of his own making.

Dallas Buyers Club: In 1985 Dallas, electrician and hustler Ron Woodroof works around the system to help AIDS patients get the medication they need after he is himself diagnosed with the disease. A true story featuring a very slimmed down Matthew McConaughey, who got his weight down to 10 stone to play the part of HIV+ Woodroof. Real life Woodroof told his incredible tale to screenwriter Craig Borten just a month before he died - and it took a further 20 years to get the film made.

La Grande Bellezza: Journalist Jep Gambardella has charmed and seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades. Since the legendary success of his one and only novel, he has been a permanent fixture in the city's literary and social circles, but when his sixty-fifth birthday coincides with a shock from the past, Jep finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life - and of Rome.

The Act of Killing: A documentary which challenges former Indonesian death-squad leaders to reenact their mass-killings in whichever cinematic genres they wish, including classic Hollywood crime scenarios and lavish musical numbers.

The Third Man: The Third Man: In 1946 in a war-torn Vienna, divided into four zones of occupation, the American writer of westerns Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) attends the funeral of his friend Harry Lime (Orson Welles), but is he really dead?
