Honestly, this movie was just ok. i watch a ton of movies, including foreign films and this just didn't have anything that really drew me in or anything that really left me with a lasting effect. I would say the pacing is very similar Honestly, this movie was just ok. i watch a ton of movies, including foreign films and this just didn't have anything that really drew me in or anything that really left me with a lasting effect. I would say the pacing is very similar to breach, which also was just ok. check it out if you are really really interested, but if you're kind of questioning whether it would be good or not i would say just rent or buy something else.

Obscenely overpraised. Juvenile banality dressed up as profound historical drama (Schindler's List anyone?). The film's would-be provocative moments come off as forced and the characters are massively lacking in vividness or depth. Obscenely overpraised.

If you want a movie about East Germany I prefer Der Tunel. Das Leben der Anderen is not a bad movie don't get me wrong and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good foreign flick, but I have a hard time trying to see what separates it from being just a good movie and into a GREAT movie as most people claim. Ulrich Tukur plays a great hero/villain and the final line of the movie really puts its stamp on a good film, nothing more nothing less. Expand
