THE LIVES OF OTHERS (15) 2006, Germany

Set in East Berlin in 1984, the story traces the gradual disillusionment of Captain Gerd Weisler, an agent of the secret police, who is ordered to spy on a celebrated writer and actress. What starts off as a routine surveillance operation motivated by Cold War politics becomes something quite different.

Multi award winning including an Oscar. One from our archive, a brilliant film as relevant today as it was then.

Director(s) Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck.  Production Year 2006.  Genre(s) Drama.  Running time 132m.
