The Lives of Others

Love can flourish in health & safety regime, my mistake, I mean Eastern European

(Edit) 30/10/2010

First few moments of seeing Stasi and interrrogation room I thought oh no what have a let myself in for. The subtle, unusual love story creeps up on you - beautiful in a story running with an abuse of power theme. The state born of pure idealism is shown in its all too human interpretation - job worthiness and bullying. To make a film that is entertainment but with social comment is always genius and this film has both, and a hero to knock the spots off Arnie.

Good

Very good, unusual and clever plot that worked on all levels yet was seemingly simple. I wondered why no one had done it before but they haven't as far as I'm aware.
