Passage Kinos (Cinema)


Film: “Control“ (USA/Great Britain/Japan/Australia, 2007, Direction: Anton Corbijn, 125 min., FSK 12, Original version in English with German subtitles)

Ian Curtis is 19 years old when he meets Debbie. A little later they are married and have a daughter. Curtis joins the band Joy Division as a singer, and with his ominous voice and dark charisma he quickly makes it an insider tip, even outside his hometown of Manchester. But he can't cope with the prospect of quick fame. An affair with the journalist Annik accelerates the end of his marriage and increases his feelings of guilt. Epileptic seizures and a severe depression escalate Curtis' descent into his personal hell. The evening before the band’s first tour of America, he comes to a momentous decision...

The touching biographical film is the directorial debut of the globally successful photographer and director Anton Corbijn. It is based on the book “Touching From A Distance”, which Ian's wife Deborah wrote about him after his death.

There are 155 seats available for WGT visitors in the "Universum" hall of the Passage Kinos.
