I second "Der Himmel Uber Berlin" (in America called Wings of Desire). If you are a U2 fan, then you are familiar with the story. They copied it for their Stay video. I just got this from the library again to watch it. It has been years since I saw it.

I just saw Bruno Ganz in the movie, The Reader. He plays the college professor.

I refuse to see the Nic Cage remake. I enjoy the original too much.

Thank you for recommending Das Leben der Anderen. I will have to look for this one.


Das Leben der Anderen is an amazing movie. First time I watched it was over the course of a couple of classes in German Culture, the prof showed it in order to give the class more insight into the workings of the state in East Germany. Loved it ever since.

This is my favourite Portuguese film, Capitães de Abril (April's Captains). The true story of the revolution of the 25th of April, 1974.
You can watch the whole thing on that url, with English subtitles. ^_^

Right, I found a French cinema site a while ago, Comme Au Cinema and I was wondering if there's a similar site in German?

I'll try to remember more.



Thanks for this suggestion too! I just watched this last night. For it being from 1931 I found it wonderful!

Yes, that looks more like Dutch than German, however it may be a German movie with a Dutch title.

Oops. I knew it was a Dutch title, but I thought it was released by a German studio. The movie is in Dutch, German and English. They switch between languages. It is a wonderful film. So many of the actors in it I know from other movies. Sebastian Koch, who was in the Lives of Others, (another foreign film talked about in this thread) is in it.

I got another German DVD today. I haven't had time to watch it, but I'll type out what's on the back of the DVD:

THE COUNTERFEITERS

The Counterfeiters is the incredible true story of the largest counterfeiting operation in history, set up by the Nazis in 1936.

Salomon "Sally" Sorowitsch is the king of counterfeiters. He lives a bourgeois life of cards, booze and women. Suddenly his luck runs out when he's arrested and thrown into a Nazi concentration camp. His exceptinal skills are spotted and he is forced to help the Nazis in an organized counterfeit operation set up to help finance the war effort and flood the British and American economies with fake currency.

Faced with a moral dilema, Salomon must decide whether his actions, which could prolong the war and risk the lives of fellow prisoners, are ultimately the right ones.




It's rated 15 as it "contains strong language and infrequent strong violence".
