Cinefile: The streaming portal for arthouse movies, documentaries, cinema and children's films

About cinefile

Nomen est omen: cinefile is the Swiss streaming service for a cinephile audience in the digital age. We continuously select worth seeing newer and newest arthouse and entertainment films from all over the world as well as digitally already accessible classics.

Why this selective behavior? Because any non-selective in our time of massive oversupply on all fronts leads to disorientation, useless spending and wasted time. On cinefile, you are not supposed to waste time and money on second- and third-rate movies.

But what are "good movies"? Connoisseurs often see it differently than casual consumers. Constant training refines taste. Tea or wine freaks also like to call everybody else ignorants.

In order to meet these different demands, we at cinefile adhere to the maxims of generosity and transparency: Every film that at least one person in our team considers as reasonably strong will be selected. And every selected film is accompanied by trailers, short reviews, ratings and background material. The latter serve not only to prepare the movie experience, but also to follow it up.

All our streaming films are available for individual rental or in the cost-effective packages Take1, Take3 and Take5, which include one, three or five films per month with discounts of up to 50%.

One last thing: Almost all streaming fans were and remain basically cinema fans. That's why cinefile also offers a clear cinema guide with all the necessary details on the complete Swiss cinema program.

Ruben Östlund, Sweden 2022, 148' c7.5

After a bitter dispute over money, model Carl and influencer Yaya are invited on a cruise for the super-rich, whose captain is holed up in his cabin, permanently drunk, while the crew reads every conceivable wish from the eyes of the decadent passengers with an eye on the big tip. When a storm hits during the captain's dinner, things get completely out of hand.

Kwan & Scheinert, USA 2016, 95' c6.9

This is the moment to discover or rediscover the delightfully surreal first feature from the American directing team Scheinert & Kwan, whose follow-up Everything Everywhere All at Once has just racked up 11 Oscar nominations.

It is set on a deserted island where shipwrecked Hank has already finished with his life when he is distracted by a strange flotsam and jetsam: the bloated corpse of Manny turns out to be an (in)dead jack-of-all-trades that is great for boating, hunting, starting fires and even communicating. The beginning of a wonderful friendship.
