Das Leben der Anderen

German movies are usually not my thing - I don't like the topics, I don't like the scripting, I don't like the acting, I don't like the actors, I don't like the drama and I don't like the humor. (Ok, they usually lack humor entirely, so there's not much not to like of the humor.)

However, there's now a notable exception: Das Leben der Anderen (The Lives of Others) is a very good film, one that I really like. It's an absorbing drama, the scripting is good and the acting is fine. There's a good reason that it has won the European Movie Award (Best Film) and is one of the top contenders for next years' Oscar (at least the foreign language one).

If you get the chance to see this movie, do it! It's worth it.
