Another great film is The Architects, completed just as the wall was coming down, in 1989.

"Unlike all of the films about East Germany I am aware of, except for “Goodbye Lenin!”, “In Times of Fading Light” does not demonize German Communists, who tend to be depicted as mustache-twirlers like the Nazis they opposed."

Have you seen Christian Petzold's "*Barbara"*? In some sense Petzold's film follows Godard's dictum that the best way to critique a film is to make a film. Petzold, who created a Stasi character who defied the well worn stereotype, was obviously disturbed by "*The Lives of Others"*. It's a movie worth seeing.
