Published: November 28, 2016

The Film Festival Cologne 2016 was held in the city of Cologne, Germany, showcasing numerous foreign language films and the finest in filmmaking from across the world. This is the second part of the two-part review on the films at the Film Festival Cologne 2016. 

Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World 

Lo and Behold is yet another documentary by the legendary German filmmaker, Werner Herzog, who explores the birth, influence and quite possibly, extinction of the internet and the human race.

It’s Only the End of the World 

After 12 years of absence, a writer goes back to his home town, planning on announcing his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, fits and feuds unfold, fuelled by loneliness and doubt, while all attempts at empathy are sabotaged by people’s incapacity to listen and love.

After the Storm

The film is about a has-been writer who is now working at a low-life detective agency and trying to mend his relationship with his former wife and son.
