The Lives of Others
2007
In 1984, secret police agent Wiesler is assigned to eavesdrop on a successful but possibly disloyal playwright in East Germany. As the lonely Wiesler learns more about the man and his lover, a prominent actress, he becomes fascinated by their lives.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

We don't really need a drama to educate us that the Stasi were corrupt and good people suffered in East Germany, but this one mines history for an effective thriller about a cold officer forced to choose between duty and justice in his surveillance job.
