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.
