Film: The Lives of Others

I'm a sucker for stories about personal redemption and forgiveness. They provide a much-needed counterpoint to the culturally-dominant "myth of redemptive violence," in my opinion. That's one reason why I liked the 2006 German film, The Lives of Others. The film is set in East Berlin just before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall and it's about a Stasi officer and his subjects.
