Laura and I have just watched the German film “Das Leben der Anderen” (translated as “The Lives of Others”). I won’t spoil it by discussing the plot in any way, but it is an absolutely brilliant film, and we highly recommend it. So if you are reading this and want to watch something thought provoking, emotional, suspenseful, and superbly directed then go and rent/buy/add to your Netflicks queue this film. You won’t regret it.
