FILM: GOODBYE LENIN

If you haven’t seen it, Goodbye Lenin is a German cinema classic, centring on familial turmoil, the fall of the Berlin wall, anomie and Ostalgie. Alex’s mother falls into a coma, only to recover. The doctors send her back to Alex’s care, with a caveat: don’t expose her to any big shocks or surprises. The only problem is, while she’s been away, the Berlin Wall has fallen and Germany had reunited. It shows at Armemuseum on Sunday, in German with Swedish subtitles.

Oct 15 @ 1430, Armémuseum

MARKET: FÄRGFABRIKEN

Anyone with an interest in design and interiors might want to think about making the trip to Färgfabriken this weekend, as Designmarknad Sthlm take over for their autumn market. There’ll be a huge amount of exhibitors, and Färgfabriken’s cafe will also be open for those who feel peckish while browsing.
