The Lives of Others (Das Leben der Anderen)

Cover from: www.coverbrowser.com

The Lives of Others is a German film about the events around the publication of literature opposing Eastern Berlin prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the surveillance that surrounded those involved. One of the gentlemen surveying the couple starts to feeling empathy for the could he's watching. Through watching their lives he discovers everything that his life is missing. It's an excellent film and although on a small scale it shows the amazing things man kind can do for each other while looking for no recognition of the deed. Extremely good acting, and good directing/cinematography.

  4. it was the movie that beat Pan's Labyrinth for best foreign film at the oscars that year. I thought Water was better than both, but both are good movies. The lead actors performance is excellent!
