Leben der Anderen, Das (2006)
The hit at Telluride
This was my favorite film at Telluride. Everyone with whom I talked had
the same feeling. It generated the most "buzz." I hope it has a wide
audience in the US. The acting by those who experienced the Stasi was
moving and believable. Ulrich Muhe as the Stasi Officer was brilliant.
Most of us cried during the final scene. Florian Henckel-Donnersmarck's
direction with its twists and turns kept the audience glued to the
screen. Because of the film's popularity, it was scheduled again for
another showing at the festival. Both Muhe and Henckel-Donnersmarck
were present and were stopped where ever they went during the festival.
I recommend this film and gave it a 10.
