Das Leben der Anderen

or The Lives of Others.

The story of the Stasi (the East German secret police) monitoring a playwright and his actress girlfriend circa 1984. These lefties who think that the old Soviet Union was the greatest thing since sliced bread need to see this movie.

German with English subtitles. Maybe twenty years ago I could have gotten by without subtitles, but not today.

One scene of nudity, but it's not porn. It's actually quite depressing.
