The 2nd Annual German Gems Festival Comes To The Castro

Last year, new German cinema arrived in San Francisco for just one day.  Sorry fans of German film, but if you had other commitments on that particular day… well, tough schnitzels.  Luckily for you however, this year the German Gems festival will last for 3 days.  Now you have no excuse to not catch at least one of Germany’s new film offerings.

Film Reviews:

Keep Surfing (Filmbalaya’s Review)Where I feel other surfing films focus on the majesty of the ocean and its waves, I find this film focusing on the beauty of people doing what they love to do.” -Tim (5 Stars)

The Architect (Filmbalaya’s Review)The all around exceptional toned down performances reign in all the absurd situations to which this script ventures into.” -Adam (3 Stars)

Disenchantments (Filmbalaya’s Review)Though somewhat compelling at times, the films’ dreary look and mundane material became stale.” -Nico (3 Stars)

She Deserved It (Filmbalaya’s Review)director, Thomas Stiller gives us a microscopic peek at one tumorous alpha female and her subsequent actions leading up to her classmate’s demise.” -Adam (2 Stars)

Mahler On The Couch (Filmbalaya’s review)If you love over dramatic, wordy, historical dramas you might like Mahler On The Couch, I however did not.” -Nick (0 Stars)
