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 Take2, Take3 and Take4, which include two, three or four films per month with discounts of up to 40%.

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.

Laura Mora, Colombia 2022, 111' c7.0

Rá, Culebro, Sere, Winny and Nano live on the streets of Medellín. The five children no longer have any contact with their families. They form a kind of fraternal clan in which they have to make their way in a parallel world without laws. In a dangerous journey between delirium and nothingness, the group leaves the city and enters the depths of the Colombian interior. There they hope to find a piece of land that Rá inherited from her late grandmother.

Kaspar Kasics, Switzerland 2022, 96' c6.7

Erica Jong's first novel, "Fear of Flying," was a departure into self-determination for many women in 1973. For puritanical America, Jong's open treatment of her needs, her frustrations and her sexuality broke a taboo, as did the unsparing drawing of her men and herself. Swiss documentary filmmaker Kaspar Kasics visits the bestselling author and her husband in their New York apartment and country home, and accompanies the feminist icon to her second adopted home in Venice. In the process, he discovers in the almost 80-year-old lady a lively contemporary witness and in the aging couple two great lovers full of mutual indulgence.
