the lives of others

Extract from a brief item on The Lives Of Others, the 2006 film, in Word, January 2010: 'Deserved Oscar glory followed for this claustrophobic, powerful political thriller but a tragic postscript ensued for Muhe [the actor who played the Stasi agent]. He lost a bitter court case in which he accused his ex-wife of being a Stasi agent and died in 2007 aged only 54.'
