Thanks for commenting. FATHERLAND is definitely noteworthy, but I was referring to German films made post-1989. Schlöndorff's DIE STILLE I will make sure to check out. It seems that it had a rather limited release outside of Germany. Thanks for the tip!

Volker Schlöndorff's Die Stille nach dem Schuß (released in the US/UK as "The Legend of Rita") and Ken Loach's Fatherland both deal with the DDR in nuanced ways.  Loach's Fatherland is especially noteworthy as a form of comparison between actually (then!) existing socialism and actually existing capitalism.
