  • The Lives of Others

    2006. Germany. Written and directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck. With Ulrich Muehe, Martina Gedeck, Sebastian Koch. Most of the action is set in Berlin's Eastern part, yet it is the idea of the neighboring West and its enticing freedom of expression that hovers over the government of the East and drives its secret police, the Stasi, to make citizens into informers. The tightly wound plot recognizes the unpredictable nature of human behavior, which in this brilliant thriller may or may not trump a repressive regime. Winner of the 2007 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Courtesy Sony Pictures Classics. In German; English subtitles. 137 min.
