Watching Diane Kruger stretch her acting chops (and rock those red lips) in Inglourious Basterds had us pining for all things deutsch.
We’re heading to Berlin, cinematically-speaking, for the Goethe-Institut series commemorating the 1989 reunification of Germany. Twenty Years After the Fall presents films about life before and after the wall came down, including the Oscar-winning The Lives of Others (7 p.m., September 24-25), and Lights From Afar, a powerful documentary about disenchanted teens growing up in late 1980s East Berlin (7 p.m., November 13).
1989 / 2009: Twenty Years after the Fall, tickets $7, September 17 to December 11, Goethe-Institut, 418 Sherbrooke St. E., Montreal, 514-499-0159, www.goethe.ca/montreal
