Das Anderen Der Lieben.. an anglophone’s thoughts on it

A good film is a film you’d want to see over and over again even knowing the ending: having something which spoilers won’t be able to break. Or preferably, several things; leitmotifs, throughlines, ideas, information, and ultimately, meaning.

It has been a long time since I last viewed an all-encompassing film which is not only entertaining but also has a well-rounded story full of layers that ran a wide gamut which all are ultimately resolved. It has been a quite a long time until I saw a masterpiece such as Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s Das Leben Der Anderen, or “The Lives of Others”.

I won’t write about the film’s plot summary as it will spoil the pleasure viewing this magnificent piece of cinematic storytelling and unplucking every hair of its rich story by yourself. However, I will stress that this film is a film which will fulfill the viewer’s need to search for every little speck of meaning from a film.
