The Lives of Others/Das Leben der Anderen

  1. Has anybody seen the film? It came out last year and won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. DH and I rented it a few weeks ago an I have to say it is phenomenal! My favorite movie this year, and one of the best movies for me ever, really. :woohoo:


    Here's a short overview.

    In 1984, five years before the fall of East Berlin, Captain Gerd Wiesler (Ulrich Mühe) is employed by the Stasi, East Germany's incredibly powerful secret police. He is asked to spy on a celebrated playwright and actress couple, Georg Dreyman (Sebastian Koch) and Christa-Maria Sieland (Martina Gedeck). But as his role as an observer suddenly morphs into that of a manipulator, Wiesler is stuck in a very dangerous game.
