The Life Of Others (2006) – Review!

The Life Of Others (original title “Das Leben der Anderen”) is a German thriller from 2006 by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who also wrote the screenplay. The main roles are played by Ulrich Mühe, Sebastian Koch, Martina Gedeck and Ulrich Tukur.The drama focuses on the state security apparatus (STASI) and the cultural scene of East Berlin.


Robin is thrilled: “The film is very suspenseful, especially the apartment searches and the interrogations. The acting achievements are outstanding!” Robin liked Ulrich Mühe as Captain Gerd Wiesler and his characteristic transformation from a bitingly malicious and ascetic obedient monk of the GDR state religion to a secret humanist the most.

Robin’s Verdict:

Absolutely worth seeing!
