A 1984 East Berlin simple surveillance assignment: Capt. Gerd Wiesler, a Stasi officer and a specialist in surveillance, has been assigned to keep an eye on Georg Dreyman, a respected playwright, and his actress girlfriend, Christa-Maria Sieland. Though Dreyman is known to associate with blacklisted director Albert Jerska, a known dissident, Dreyman's record is spotless. Wiesler discovers that Minister Hempf has an ulterior motive in spying on this seemingly upright citizen. Wiesler's sympathies shift from the government to its people - or at least to this one particular person

Benny's video by Michael Haneke( Visual )

"The title character in Benny's Video is a twisted 13-year-old boy who sees the world as one big video, sometimes starring himself. His bedroom resembles a TV production studio, with a videotape library, monitors, and cameras, including one camera pointed out the window so he can watch a pixilated version of "the view" on TV. Another camera records Benny--he can watch himself watching himself--and a bank of buttons and remote controls allow him to instantly switch from the real-time cameras to television programs to videos. His parents are mostly absent, and not particularly interested in their kid, but they get very interested when they discover that their quiet child has done something unspeakably violent, for no apparent reason. "Why did you do it?" they ask, and the boy just says, 'Because.'"--Ken Dubois, Reel.com

K. arrives at an isolated village to take up his position as a land surveyor for officials at the Castle. No one will confirm or deny his appointment, and his attempts to approach and appeal to Castle officials are met with indifference, obstinacy, and bureaucratic red tape. K. has status but no position, two dolts for assistants, the forlorn barmaid Frieda as a fiancée, and arguments with everyone. An icy blizzard blows unendingly, immeasurable time passes, and K. trudges repeatedly back and forth, waiting for the smallest scrap of information or news from the Castle, that they have need of him, or at least recognition of his existence

In einer Winternacht kommt K. (Ulrich Mühe) im Dorf an. Seine Auskunft, er sei zum Landvermessen bestellt, wird mit Skepsis quittiert. Ein Bote überbringt eine Nachricht, zwei Gehilfen stellen sich ein, doch kein Weg führt ins Schloß. Der Gemeindevorsteher erklärt K.s Berufung als Verwaltungsirrtum, der Lehrer stellt ihn schließlich als Schuldiener an. K. macht sich Schankkellnerin Frieda (Susanne Lothar) gefügig, um über sie an den Beamten Klamm heranzukommen. Doch je mehr sich K. bemüht, desto weiter entfernt er sich von seinem Ziel und bleibt, was er bei seiner Ankunft war, ein geduldeter Fremder. Als er irgendwann endlich zu einer Unterredung beordert wird, im falschen Zimmer aber vor Erschöpfung einschläft, überhört er den Hinweis, daß das Amt in einer solchen Situation jede Bitte erfüllen würde

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

"Two systems: the Nazi machine versus the Vatican and Allied diplomacy. Two men struggling from the inside. On one side, Kurt Gerstein, a real-life chemist and SS officer, supplied the death camps with zyklon B while he tirelessly denounced the crimes and alerted the Allies, the Pope, the Germans and their churches at his family's and his own risk. On the other, Ricardo Fontana, a young Jesuit, a fictitious character who represents all the priests who had the heart to struggle against savagery, often paying for their courage with their lives. Countless priests, some known, others anonymous, who simply were not content to live with the silence of their church's hierarchy."--IMDb

Germany's lyric poet Friedrich Holderlin (1770-1843) is the subject of this informative re-enactment of the 12 years between 1796 -- when he ended his classes at the University of Tubingen -- and 1806 -- when he took up residence in what has come to be known as "Holderlin's Tower" in Tubingen. This film looks at Holderlin's life as a tutor for the wealthy Gontard family in Frankfurt. He falls in love with the lady of the house, and their affair leads to his dismissal, exacerbating his already sharp sense of solitude. As Holderlin tries to come to grips with his personal losses, the French Revolution dominates his thinking. His deteriorating mental state would soon see him isolated in his "tower" for the rest of his life. -- All Movie Guide/New York Times
