Early 1980s: the successful dramatist Georg Dreyman (Sebastian Koch) and his longtime companion and actress Christa-Maria Sieland (Martina Gedeck) are big intellectual stars in the socialist state. Minister of Culture Bruno Hempf becomes interested in Christa-Maria, and soon enough, secret service agent Wiesler (Ulrich Muhe) must listen to Sieland and Dreymann's daily life, which gradually seems t... read more

"An innocent prisoner will become more angry by the hour due to the injustice suffered. He will shout and rage. A guilty prisoner becomes more calm and quiet. Or he cries. He knows he's there for a reason. The best way to establish guilt or innocence is non-stop interrogation."

The Lives of Others is an enthralling, provocative German thriller that accurately captures a truly horrif... read more

Description: East Berlin, November 1984. Five years before its downfall, the former East-German government ensured its claim to power with a ruthless system of control and surveillance. Party-loyalist Captain Gerd Wiesler hopes to boost his career when given the job of collecting evidence against the playwright Georg Dreyman and his girlfriend, the celebrated theater actress Christa-Maria Sieland. After all, the "operation" is backed by the highest political circles.

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2017 (228 movies items)

"28.5. Kommenttien kirjoittajan mennessä rikki, tulee ajatelleeksi kaikenlaista. Muiden Elämä on ylipitkä, vaikka se tarttuukin aiheeseensa saksalaisella jämptiydellä. Ajankuva on saatu hyvin DDR:n näköiseksi, mutta loppupeleissä henkilöiden kohtalot tai muut ruudulla tapahtuvat asiat eivät kiinnosta markan vertaa. Pohjois-Koreassa kuulemani mukaan harrastetaan edelleen tätä stasin kuuluisaa salakuuntelua. Ainakin heillä on siellä Itä-Saksan vanhat metrovaunut käytössä."
