The Lives of Others
Wow - I've been waiting awhile to see The Lives of Others, the 2006 Academy Award-winner for best foreign film, and it most definitely did not disappoint me. It's a very gripping drama/suspense set in mid-80s East Germany. The paranoia and constant threat of surveillance is almost palpable in this extremely well-acted and well-written movie. I highly recommend it, especially if you'd like to brush up on your German!
