This critically-acclaimed, Oscar winning film (Best Foreign Language Film, 2006) is the erotic, emotionally charged experience Lisa Schwarzbaum (Entertainment Weekly) calls a nail-biter of a thriller! Before the collapse of the Berlin Wall, East Germanys population was closely monitored by the State Secret Police or Stasi. Only a few citizens above suspicion, like renowned pro-Socialist playwright Georg Dreyman, were permitted to lead private lives. But when a corrupt government official falls for Georgs stunning actress-girlfriend, Christa, an ambitious Stasi policeman is ordered to bug the writers apartment to gain incriminating evidence against the rival. Now, what the officer discovers is about to dramatically change their lives as well as his in this seductive political thriller Peter Travers (Rolling Stone) proclaims is the best kind of movie: one you cant get out of your head.
