The Lives Of Others - DVD - £3.99 Delivered at HMV

Good price for this excellent BAFTA winning movie. Nearest price I can see is £5.

German Language with English subtitles

East Berlin, November 1984. Five years before its downfall, the former East-German government ensured its claim to power with a ruthless system of control and surveillance.

Party-loyalist Captain Gerd Wiesler hopes to boost his career when given the job of collecting evidence against the playwright Georg Dreyman and his girlfriend, the celebrated theatre actress Christa-Maria Sieland. After all, the "operation" is backed by the highest political circles.

What he didn't anticipate, however, was that submerging oneself into the world of the target also changes the surveillance agent. The immersion in the lives of others - in love, literature, free thinking and speech - makes Wiesler acutely aware of the meagerness of his own existence and opens to him a completely new way of life which he has ever more trouble resisting. But the system, once started, cannot be stopped. A dangerous game has begun...

I don't think you'll regret it. Best film I have seen in a while.

I have to agree,easily the best film I seen last year. It totally draws you in. I think they will use this film in colleges and film schools to teach students how you make a movie. ***** stars

Wonderfully made, but I honestly think it's overrated. Stopped watching 3/4 way through - so boring :/


hence the avatar, stick to "The Fast & The Furious"

Not seen a film as good since "The Godfather 2"

Is this good as Downfall? I know they are probably on the different spectrum but it's the only comparison I can think of?

Thank you.

Yes I would say it is better than Downfall, that film seemed to drag on a little for me and was a bit in-your-face with its delivery. das Lieben der Anderen is a great film, and if you like these you will probably enjoy Good Bye Lenin! Which I would also recommend.
#12
This and Good bye lenin are really good films.

At this price its (about!) the same as a rental!! - cant go wrong :)
#13
