The Lives of Others
Directed by: Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck
Mongrel Media
Academy Award winner in 2007 for best Foreign Language film, this beat out the healthiest field in years, including the fairy tale horror Pan’s Labyrinth. The story is of the final days of East Germany behind the Iron Curtain, and how a Stasi eavesdropper gets caught up in the lives of two artists under his surveillance.
