The Lives of Others (Das Leben der Anderen)

Germany, 2006, 137min, thriller. German with English subtitles.
Writer and Director: Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck

Still from  'The Lives of Others'

An audience favourite, this tense drama follows a Stasi officer in 1984 East Berlin, whose job is to uncover people planning to defect to the West. The story revolves around his investigation of a late-30s playwright and his girlfriend, who prove to be more challenging than the usual suspects, and intriguing complications arise. An Academy award-winning film that gently — but firmly — draws you into its complex web, and holds you captive until the end.

"The movie "convincingly demonstrates that when done right, moral and political quandaries can be the most intensely dramatic dilemmas of all." — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
