“German Film of the Week” Is Back

Watching foreign language feature films is an enjoyable way to practice your listening skills, learn more about other cultures and be entertained at the same time.

index“German Film of the Week” recommends a new film each week, which is available to watch online, usually by providing links to movies stored on Box of Broadcasts, an online recording service that many UK universities subscribe to.
So have your popcorn ready, enjoying German cinema doesn’t get much easier than this!

We kick off with “The Wave” (Die Welle), a film based on a real-life political experiment in a school. Left-wing teacher Rainer Wenger decides to teach his class about totalitarianism in a “learning-by-doing” kind of way, which soon spirals out of control…

To get a taste of the movie, watch the trailer:
