This is my third time watching this film. It is easily in my top ten films of all time simply because it is a perfect movie. Every scene in this movie has meaning, not a single line is wasted each has its own purpose. Its so intricate but not difficult to follow so that everything ties up majestically at the end. The acting of Ulrich Muhe who plays a Stasi operative ordered to spy on a couple suspected of subversion is just incredible. The best acting you will see anywhere and has the added poignancy in that Ulrich died not long after the film was released. The film went on to win that years Oscar for best foreign film. Watch this film, don't be put off by the subtitles, this is a piece of art..it will stay with you for a long long time.

It's been years since I've seen a movie with such a stong cast and equally strong writing. No explosions, no guns, no special effects. It's the type of movie that used to be made when actors acted and writers wrote. The emotions are there and you can clearly see how it must have been when the Stasi asked you calmly "what is your name?"... In a not so long ago world, that was just short of a death sentence. If you want a good movie with blood, special effect but not much of a story, go see 300. If you just want a great story, go see this film.

Das war ein sehr guter Film

For such a quiet film, it is very tense and engrossing. It was utterly rewarding to see the main character develop from a relatively blunt and subdued figure to one of perspective and compassion.

Very good movie. I'd like to know from someone living in East Germany during these years if this was an accurate depiction of life during those times.

What a quiet and riveting film that succeeds on all levels: acting, writing, direction, and cinematography...

so, i'm assuming everyone that's commenting, on what appears to be an interesting movie, speaks german. there are no subtitles.

Gripping is the word to describe this movie. The setting is a police state of the sort often seen in futuristic sci/fi type movies, only real. I think it is also good history for young people.
