  3. Annie Gentil-Kraatz's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    A great insight into East Germany and the intrusive way information services monitored the lives of its citizens...

  4. dordairobert's rating of the film The Lives of Others

  5. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    A sensible, thematically mature film which I really don't like because in its schematic depiction of human life it can't help but implicitly fall down on the side of the Stasi. Daily-lived life is in the messy, inexplicable details and chance moments which tight, Robert McKee-endorsed scripting can't help but neglect. IMHO 'The Lives of Others' needed to be a scream against complacency, not an articulated statement.

  7. Aditya Watts's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    Yuck really? So fake. Emotionally and Intellectually vapid.

  9. anacecil's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    Me encantó !!! Terrible ver el espionaje de la Cortina de Hierro de esa época. La oscura vida del personaje central y su interés por la vida de los que espía hace de esta película, una trama muy interesante.

  10. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    Although he wasn't nominated for an Oscar, Ulrich Muhe was the best actor for 2007. It may be one of the best performances I've ever seen. He died while the director of this movie was in the process of sending him his Oscar. Tom Cruise came to his funeral.

  11. liaaaxu's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    cried alone in Florence after watching this

  12. MistaRichard's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    Really intricate and well thought out plot. Also, the longest director's name I've seen ever.

  13. Luca Soldati's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    La trama è interessante e sviluppata con intelligenza. Bel parallelismo fra la spia Gerd e lo spettatore nell'osservare lo scrittore. Gerd vive la sua vita da spettatore. Veramente un bel personaggio. Ambientazione ben fatta e che dà un forte senso di insicurezza, essendo dominata dalla diffidenza. Bellissimo finale. Ottima regia che ritma bene il racconto e gli dà una forte impronta emotiva.Attori veramente in forma

  14. Blueangel33's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    Nerve wracking and captivating. A deep portrait of human motivation. I loved it.

  15. João R's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    Mature and frugal direction tangled between wires of drama, thriller and history that presents a great sense of storytelling. Howsoever (and this is completely subjective), the way characters were portrayed felt crude and cold leaving little space for me to really emerge into their desires, achievements, struggles and, lastly, the grand final sacrífice.

  16. Gabriele Pumo's rating of the film The Lives of Others

  17. Chris's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    good, but maybe a tad overrated

  18. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    Really great film making in every sense. The subject matter is really interesting anyway and the film has lots to say about the dangers of the totalitarian state as well as providing an excellent character study of the central protagonist. Definitely want to watch it again as I get the sense that there is more to it that one can absorb in one sitting...

  19. Elaine Bautista's rating of the film The Lives of Others

  20. yovargas's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    Fascinating premise - an oppressive Communist regime where the goal is total knowledge & control tries to monitor every moment of a "dangerous" artists life. It's smart, taught, full of tension and suspense. The directing is beautiful and all of the cast are excellent. And yet....I couldn't get into it. Dunno why. The characters felt too remote somehow. Deserves a better score but - I give it a C.

  21. NICOLE86's rating of the film The Lives of Others

    One of the best films of the last decade.

  22. BernardoDiniz's rating of the film The Lives of Others
