What is on at Burg Kino this week (4 April - 10 April)

By Kostyantyn Steblovskyy

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

The Grand Budapest Hotel: A comedy-drama film written and directed by Wes Anderson and inspired by the writings of Stefan Zweig. The film follows the adventures of Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and his lobby boy Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori), who becomes his most trusted friend. The two team to prove his innocence after he is framed for murder. The cast also includes Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Saoirse Ronan, Edward Norton, and William Dafoe.

Her: A science fiction romantic comedy-drama film written, directed, and produced by Spike Jonze (Where the Wild Things Are - 2009). The film stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde, and Scarlett Johansson as the voice of Samantha. The film centers on a man who develops a relationship with an intelligent computer operating system (OS) with a female voice and personality. It marks Jonze's solo screenwriting debut. The film was under fire, when Scarlett Johansson won numerous awards in Best Supporting Actress categories, because we don't see the actress actually playing in the film.

A Long Way Down: A 2014 British dark comedy film directed by Pascal Chaumeil, loosely based on author Nick Hornby's 2005 novel, A Long Way Down. It stars Imogen Poots, Toni Collette, Pierce Brosnan, and Aaron Paul as four strangers who happen to meet on the roof of a London building on New Year's Eve, each with the intent of committing suicide. Their plans for death in solitude are ruined when they meet as they decide to come down from the roof alive — however temporary that may be.

The Book Thief: A war drama film based on the novel of the same name by Markus Zusak, directed by Brian Percival and written by Michael Petroni, with an Oscar-nominated musical score composed by John Williams. While subjected to the horrors of World War II Germany, young Liesel finds solace by stealing books and sharing them with others. In the basement of her home, a Jewish refugee is being sheltered by her adoptive parents. The film stars Emily Watson, Geoffrey Rush, Sophie Nélisse, Ben Schnetzer, Nico Liersch, and Joachim Paul Assböck.

American Hustle: A crime comedy-drama film directed by David O. Russell, from a screenplay written by Eric Warren Singer and Russell, loosely based on the FBI ABSCAM operation of the late 1970s and early 1980s. It stars Christian Bale and Amy Adams as two con artists who are forced by an FBI agent (Bradley Cooper) to set up an elaborate sting operation on corrupt politicians, including the mayor of Camden, New Jersey (Jeremy Renner). Jennifer Lawrence plays the unpredictable wife of Bale's character. The film won three Golden Globe Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and three BAFTA Awards.

Le Passé (English - The Past): A French drama film written and directed by the Iranian director Asghar Farhadi and starring Bérénice Bejo, Tahar Rahim and Ali Mosaffa. The film follows an Iranian man, who deserts his French wife and her two children to return to his homeland. Meanwhile, his wife starts up a new relationship, a reality her husband confronts upon his wife's request for a divorce.

Dallas Buyers Club: A biographical drama film, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée and written by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack. Matthew McConaughey stars as the real-life AIDS patient Ron Woodroof, who smuggled unapproved pharmaceutical drugs into Texas when he found them effective at improving his symptoms, distributing them to fellow sufferers by establishing the "Dallas Buyers Club" while facing opposition from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The film received acclaim from critics, and won numerous accolades – most recognizing the performances of McConaughey and Jared Leto, including the Academy Award for Best Actor and the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, making it the first film since Mystic River (2003) to win both awards. 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.

The Third Man: A 1949 British film noir, directed by Carol Reed and starring Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli, Orson Welles, and Trevor Howard. It is particularly remembered for its atmospheric cinematography, performances, and musical score, and it is considered one of the greatest films of all time. The screenplay was written by novelist Graham Greene, who subsequently published the novella of the same name. Pulp novelist Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) travels to shadowy, postwar Vienna, only to find himself investigating the mysterious death of an old friend, black-market opportunist Harry Lime (Orson Welles).

Also on 9th of April there will be a discussion meeting on the subject of "GIER - Wirtschaftskrise mit System" with Christine Hapala, Susanne Lederer-Papst, Max Edelbacher, Wolfgang Hetzer, Gerhard Weissgrab and „Gunkl“ Günther Paal.
