Das Leben der Anderen

My German class is currently studying film, so I just had to talk about Das Leben der Anderen today. The German film (pretty low budget) won an Oscar award and has a phenomenoal story. It follows Gerd Wiesler, who is with the Stasi (secret police) in East Berlin. He is assigned a mission to install microphones throughout the apartment of famous playwright, Georg Dreyman and his lover and popular stage actress, Christa-Maria Sieldand. Dreyman is convinced he is the only artist left in Berlin that isn't be watched, due to his strict adherence to only writing nationalistic plays that would please the government. However, as it turns out, they listen to everyone.

What will happen? You must watch it! I'm normally against sub-titles, because I feel disjointed when I'm reading the bottom of the screen and missing the action. However, this film is really beautiful, so I'd highly recommend it.
