Ost-Berlin, November 1984. Der DDR-Staat sichert seinen Machtanspruch mit einem erbarmungslosen System aus Kontrolle und Überwachung. Als Oberstleutnant Anton Grubitz (Ulrich Tukur) den linientreuen Stasi-Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler (Ulrich Mühe) auf den erfolgreichen Dramatiker Georg Dreyman (Sebastian Koch) und seine Lebensgefährtin (Martina Gedeck) ansetzt, verspricht er sich davon einen Karriereschub. Womit er nicht gerechnet hat: Das intime Eindringen in die Welt der Observierten verändert auch den Stasi-Mann. Das Eintauchen in DAS LEBEN DER ANDEREN - in Liebe, Literatur, freies Denken und Reden - eröffnet Wiesler eine nie gekannte Welt, der er sich immer weniger entziehen kann. Ein gefährliches Spiel beginnt. Das Leben der Anderen erzählt kompromisslos ein Thema aus Deutschland, das so authentisch, spannend und einfühlsam bisher noch nie inszeniert wurde

Die Wirren der letzten Kriegstage. Der 13-jährige Tom verliert auf der Flucht seine Mutter. In Wien trifft er auf den einbeinigen Schieber "Krücke" - ein verschlagener, gerissener Überlebenskünstler und zugleich ein hinreissender, gütiger Freund. Die beiden finden Unterschlupf bei der Jüdin Bronka, die als Serviererin alliierten Soldaten und Schwarzhändlern Alkohol ausschenkt. Tom und Krücke richten sich in dieser unsicheren Welt ein. Krücke spielt Saxophon, Tom kellnert, bis eines Tages eine Rückkehr nach Deutschland möglich wird. Aber der Zug, den der Einbeinige und der Junge besteigen, bleibt im Niemandsland liegen. Eingezwängt in den Güterwagen erleben die beiden wie auch ihre Leidensgefährten noch einmal Verzweiflung und Todesangst. Doch dann läuft der Zug in Passau ein, wo Tom seine Mutter wiederfindet - und er sich von Krücke trennen muss. "In seinem ersten Kinofilm ist dem Münchener Regisseur Jörg Grünler ein eindringliches Aussenseiterportrait gelungen. Heinz Hönig als gerissener Schwarzhändler mit weichem Kern spielt so gut wie schon lange nicht mehr." (Filmecho 4/94). (Quelle: Umschlag)

Jud Süss - Film ohne Gewissen ( Visual )
5 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ende der 1930er-Jahre umwirbt NS-Propagandaminister Joseph Goebbels den Schauspieler Ferdinand Marian, den er als Hauptdarsteller für den Film "Jud Süß" von Veit Harlan gewinnen will. Dieser willigt schließlich ein, in der Absicht, den Protagonisten zum Sympathieträger zu machen. Doch genau diese Eitelkeit nutzen Goebbels und Harlan, um die antijüdische Hetzwirkung des Films noch zu steigern. Eine filmhistorisch raffiniert zusammengefügte Groteske, die mit den Mitteln der Daily Soap inklusive einer trivialisierten Schwundstufe des Melodrams nach der Verantwortung der deutschen Filmindustrie während des Dritten Reichs fragt.
