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.

Wiesler's sympathies shift from the government to its people - or at least to this one particular person

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
Benny's video by Michael Haneke( Visual )

38 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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,

Von allem Anfang an by Christoph Hein( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die 50er-Jahre im Süden der DDR: Der 15-jährige Pfarrerssohn Daniel darf aus politischen Gründen nicht mehr die Oberschule besuchen. Damit Daniel dennoch sein Abitur machen kann, will sein Vater ihn zu Verwandten nach Westberlin bringen. Vor dem Hintergrund dieser Flucht am Vorabend des Mauerbaus erinnert sich Daniel an die zurückliegenden Jahre und eine Pubertät in der noch jungen DDR. Dabei ist Daniel durchaus nicht als rein fiktive Romanfigur zu verstehen, sondern vielmehr als Alter Ego des großen Theater- und Romanautors Christoph Hein. In neun Episoden erzählt er vom Ende einer Kindheit und zeigt dabei unaufdringlich, wie das Politische immer wieder in eine scheinbar normale Jugend einbricht. Kunstvoll verwebt er in "Von allem Anfang an" Elemente seiner eigenen Biographie mit Fiktivem

Hälfte des Lebens Friedrich Hölderlin; eine verhängnisvolle Dichterliebe( Visual )

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
