Movie Review: The Lives Of Others


I saw this film with my parents and our opinions were unanimous - this is a superb film in every way. The acting is peerless, the story, totally engrossing and the pay-off almost brought tears to my eyes. It is set in the mid 1980's in the former DDR (east Germany, for those who are old enough to remember) and centres around the workings of the Stasi (the Secret Police)

The film won the Best Foreign Language Film at this years' Oscars which is not surprising (even though the Academy aren't always the best judge of what is or isn't a great movie)

I'm not going to add anything else, except...go see!

My rating:
*****
