European History Movie Review
Movie Review ProjectThe Lives of Others:For this project you are to watch this film. It will be a more challenging film as it is in German, but it does have English subtitles. However, it is an excellent depiction of life in East Berlin in the early 1980’s and the role of the Stasi in the everyday lives of the citizens of East Germany. Various summaries of the movie can be found online and I have no objection to you reading them ahead of time to get an overview of the movie, however they do not substitute for the movie itself. After watching the film, I would like you to write a paper in which you address the following prompt.The film, The Lives of Others, is a strong indictment of the Communist governments,not only in East Berlin, but in all Eastern European states. More specifically, it reveals thedestruction of lives, the abuse of power, the fear of retribution ,and the apparent lack ofpersonal freedom in East Germany under a one-party system of government.In your essay you should select three of the four topics mentioned in the prompt.
