The Lives of Others "Das Leben der Anderen" (2006) German Movie Night

  • Halifax Central Library, Room #301 Halifax, NS Canada (map)

At once a political thriller and human drama, The Lives of Others begins in East Berlin in 1984, five years before Glasnost and the fall of the Berlin Wall, and takes us to 1991, in what is now the reunited Germany.

THE LIVES OF OTHERS traces the gradual disillusionment of Captain Gerd Wiesler, a highly skilled officer who works for the Stasi, East Germany's all-powerful secret police, who is becoming absorbed in the lives of his surveillance objects.

The film is in German with English subtitles provided.
