The Lives of Others

Gestern Abend haben wir endlich “Das Leben der Anderen” gesehen. Was für ein wunderbarer Film! Der hat mich vom Amfang an ergriffen. Ulrich Mühe hat mich sehr an Ben Kingsley errinnert, besonders in dem Film “The House of Sand and Fog” (Ein Film bei dem ich die Charaktere als Menschen nicht mochte, aber als Charaktere liebte) . Ich weiss nicht genau ob das nur ein Gefühl ist, or sein Aussehen, oder was, aber er hat ein rühiger, starker Mann dargestellt, den man gerne kenne. Ich war traurig zu erfahren, daß er mittlerweile gestorben ist. Wer weiss wir er als Mensch war (ich kenne ihn nur als Darsteller), aber mag er das Leben genossen haben.

Last night we finally watched “The Lives of Others”. What an amazing film. I was completely drawn in right from the beginning. Ulrich Mühe reminded me quite a bit of Ben Kingsley, especially in his role in “The House of Sand and Fog” (a movie in which I didn’t really like the characters as people, but loved them as characters). I don’t know if this similarity for me is due to a feeling, or his looks, but he played a quiet, strong, thoughtful person; the kind of person one would like to know. I was sad to learn that he has since died. I know nothing of him as a real person, but may he have enjoyed life.

    I agree – I think The Lives of Others was one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. If you liked the movie, you’ll like this interview with the director – very interesting:
