Ost-Berlin, November 1984. Der DDR-Staat sichert seinen Machtanspruch mit einem erbarmungslosen System aus Kontrolle und Überwachung. Als Oberstleutnant Anton Grubitz (Ulrich Tukur) den linientreuen Stasi-Hauptmann Gerd Wiesler (Ulrich Mühe) auf den erfolgreichen Dramatiker Georg Dreyman (Sebastian Koch) und seine Lebensgefährtin (Martina Gedeck) ansetzt, verspricht er sich davon einen Karriereschub. Womit er nicht gerechnet hat: Das intime Eindringen in die Welt der Observierten verändert auch den Stasi-Mann. Das Eintauchen in DAS LEBEN DER ANDEREN - in Liebe, Literatur, freies Denken und Reden - eröffnet Wiesler eine nie gekannte Welt, der er sich immer weniger entziehen kann. Ein gefährliches Spiel beginnt. Das Leben der Anderen erzählt kompromisslos ein Thema aus Deutschland, das so authentisch, spannend und einfühlsam bisher noch nie inszeniert wurde

At her parents' urging, Effi Briest, a free-spirited 17-year-old girl, marries Baron von Innstetten, nearly 20 years her senior, and a former admirer of Effi's mother. The arranged marriage spells the beginning of a monotonous existence for Effi far away from her hometown, as Innstetten is preoccupied with his political career and the sleepy town of Kessin offers little excitement. That is, until Major Crampas arrives--one of Innstetten's military comrades and a charming womanizer. Effi starts a passionate affair with him and finally discovers what love is. But it comes at a steep price; the affair proves fatal for Crampas.
