Plot

Gerd Wiesler is a member of the Stasi and He is a master interrogator. Also, he can easily recognize when a suspect is lying. His superior, Grubitz gives a surveillance mission to him and asks to gather more information about Georg Dreyman and his actress-girlfriend, Crista Maria Sieland.

Thoughts

It's a character study of two good men and the way it is shown in the film was exceptional. From the facial expressions it was crystal clear that the role of Capt. Gerd Wiesler was made only for Ulrich Muhe to shine on the screen without any competitor. It's always a dream for a debutante director to win Oscar for his first feature film and It won the 2006 Academy Award for Best foreign language film. The supporting cast was great, the storytelling method was impressive, the direction was brilliant and overall it's a perfect movie. Must watch!!!
