    I watched this film when it first came out and liked it but certainly did not love it. This was the first rewatch since 2006 I was blown away by it! Great movie. Love the ending!!

    This gripping thriller-drama plays with human emotions in an expert fashion; by the time The Lives of Others's credits roll, it will have touched your life as well.

    Set in East Berlin in the 1980s during the Cold War, this is a brilliantly made, perfectly slowly paced, thrilling, and, in every single aspect, a remarkable film. The plot doesn't have many characters or locations but everything was in its right place and magnificently directed and that resulted in a compelling and completely absorbing motion picture. The acting was superb, in particular Ulrich Mühe, who didn't need to speak much in order to deliver one of the most mesmerizing…

    Very solid, well-constructed film about a very interesting period of Germany's history. Weird to think it's only been 24-25 years since Germany reunified.

    A tense and intriguing film with an impressively understated and nuanced performance from the late Ulrich Muhe at it's centre.
