Synopsis:

Set in East Berlin in 1984, Gerd Weisler is an officer with the Stasi and trains students on the art of interrogation and spying. He is ordered to put a leading playwright under surveillance by the corrupt Minister of Culture, who secretly lusts after the playwright’s partner. As Weisler gets to know his targets, he uncharacteristically starts to care about them. Slowly he begins to intervene in their lives, protecting them where he can, but his actions put him under suspicion. Winner of the 2006 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, its factual accuracy and atmosphere is remarkable.

Presented as part of a selection of Best Film winners of the European Film Awards, celebrating its 30th anniversary. Also screening in the selection are Amélie and Volver.
