Lives of Others

In German with English subtitles Academy Award Winner Best Foreign Language Film "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. It traces the gradual disillusionment of Captain Gerd Wiesler, a highly skilled officer who works for East Germany's all-powerful secret police. His mission is to spy on a celebrated writer and actress couple, Georg Dreyman and Christa-Maria Sieland. While Dreyman is away from home, his apartment is systematically bugged. Wiesler sets up his surveillance headquarters in the attic of Dreyman's apartment building, thus beginning Wiesler's cold and calculating observation of the lives of the playwright and his girlfriend. But Wiesler's unemotional fa&

231;ade eventually shows signs of erosion. In observing the day-to-day life of Dreyman and Christa-Maria, he begins to be drawn into their world. His immersion in "the lives of others," in love, literature and freethinking, also makes Wiesler acutely aware of the shortfalls of his own existence.
