Engrossing political thriller!

“"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 horrifying time in the East Germany's history (a period that concluded less than two decades ago).

listen, watch, learn...

“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 to fascinate him more and more...

Get ready to be transported to the world of East Germany before the fall of the wall. A well-directed, disturbing movie with great actors and excellent script.

This is a very much underrated film that deserves to be seen.

great movie

“"Das Leben der Anderen" succeeds where so many other movies fail: telling a simple story in a way that all characters have enough room to develop. I enjoyed it, must see, i'd say!” read more

"It's the time of Communist rule in East Germany and a member of the security police is asked to conduct surveillance on a artistic couple by his corrupt superior and and dig up some real or imaginary on them. While conducting the surveillance, he becomes intimately involved with their life and begins to sympathise (love?) the two people whose life he is invading. He represents the very personification living life vicariously."
