A very good movie

“It is one of those cases that you hear so many good things about a movie, you get such high expectations that it becomes impossible for the concerned picture to meet those expectations. For example, Carice van Houten, a big star in the Netherlands and currently the best actress out there, said it was even the best movie that came out during the last 10 years. It was supposed to be that good. Eventually, I liked it, I thought it was very good but unfortunately, I never thought it was that brilliant. The story is very interesting and it is very well done but the main issue for me was that I didn't care much about any characters, neither the secret police agent or the intellectual couple.

"Ulrich Mühe On its face, a crackling international thriller, The Lives of Others is, upon closer examination, a thoughtful and deep meditation on the power of art—both in its ability to transform the individual and an entire society. Ulrich Mühe, as East German Stasi Captain Gerd Wiesler, stands at the center of this tale as a petty bureaucrat known for his loyalty to the state and his highly effective interrogation techniques. Wiesler has the assignment of spying on suspected dissident play"

“The «Das Leben Der Anderen» a sincere attempt (within or outside the quotation marks) look at historical events but not prevent barely be baptized as such. Risky without another operation. But how and when it is not yet the world tries to find balance with capitalism triumphant winner and to dominate entirely (in the absence of counter-power), looking at the same time that others still to be expanded. Two systems, two worlds trying for years to impose each other in the world brantefer. The outcome of the match, though now known, does not ensure a priori the objective historical narrative (if there is objective meaning). Far from it.

" In the early 1980s, Georg Dreyman (a successful dramatist) and his longtime companion Christa-Maria Sieland (a popular actress), were huge intellectual stars in (former) East Germany, although they secretly don't always toe the party line. One day, the Minister of Culture becomes interested in Christa, so the secret service agent Wiesler is instructed to observe and sound out the couple, but their life fascinates him more and more. -------------------------------------------------------------"
