A Good Man

“-Many people love you for who you are

-Actors are never ‘who they are’ ”

The Lives of Others  (Das Leben Dan Anderen) starts out like any other movie about life under socialism during the Cold War. All the stereotypical characters are there: The corrupt government official, the hardcore party member, the tormented artist and his even more tormented actress of a girlfriend.

Progressively,the characters turn into what they most despise.

Agent

Informant

Rebel

Which one are you?

Watch it!

N.B: On a completely different note, all the military uniforms, khaki trenches and camel suede vests are alarmingly reminiscent of what is seen on runways this season. Just Sayin’..
