A 1984 East Berlin simple surveillance assignment: Capt. Gerd Wiesler, a Stasi officer and a specialist in surveillance, has been assigned to keep an eye on Georg Dreyman, a respected playwright, and his actress girlfriend, Christa-Maria Sieland. Though Dreyman is known to associate with blacklisted director Albert Jerska, a known dissident, Dreyman's record is spotless. Wiesler discovers that Minister Hempf has an ulterior motive in spying on this seemingly upright citizen. Wiesler's sympathies shift from the government to its people - or at least to this one particular person

A pair of polite, bland-ish German teenagers approach a woman, her husband and son at their lakeside summer cottage. It soon becomes apparent that the young men have no intention of leaving. When the husband tries to throw them out, physical violence erupts, and the family is held captive. What ensues is a series of disturbing and sadistic 'games' initiated by the sociopathic pair, with Georg, Anna and Georgie the unwilling participants
Benny's video by Michael Haneke( Visual )

42 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The title character in Benny's Video is a twisted 13-year-old boy who sees the world as one big video, sometimes starring himself. His bedroom resembles a TV production studio, with a videotape library, monitors, and cameras, including one camera pointed out the window so he can watch a pixilated version of "the view" on TV. Another camera records Benny--he can watch himself watching himself--and a bank of buttons and remote controls allow him to instantly switch from the real-time cameras to television programs to videos. His parents are mostly absent, and not particularly interested in their kid, but they get very interested when they discover that their quiet child has done something unspeakably violent, for no apparent reason. "Why did you do it?" they ask, and the boy just says, 'Because.'"--Ken Dubois, Reel.com
Mein Führer : my Führer( Visual )

"December 1944: Berlin lies in ruins and the war is as good as lost. Goebbels is convinced all the country needs is a re-energizing speech from the Führer. Adolf, however, is only a shadow of his former self; demoralized and depressed, he hides in his office. The only man who can help is Germany's finest acting teacher, Adolf Grünbaum -- a Jew"--Container

K. arrives at an isolated village to take up his position as a land surveyor for officials at the Castle. No one will confirm or deny his appointment, and his attempts to approach and appeal to Castle officials are met with indifference, obstinacy, and bureaucratic red tape. K. has status but no position, two dolts for assistants, the forlorn barmaid Frieda as a fiancée, and arguments with everyone. An icy blizzard blows unendingly, immeasurable time passes, and K. trudges repeatedly back and forth, waiting for the smallest scrap of information or news from the Castle, that they have need of him, or at least recognition of his existence

In 1984 East Berlin, the Stasi Captain Gerd Wiesler is assigned to spy on the playwright Georg Dreyman. Wiesler and his team bug the apartment, set up surveillance equipment in an attic and begin reporting on the activities of Dreyman, who had previously escaped state scrutiny due to his pro-Communist views and international recognition. One day, however, Wiesler learns the real reason behind the surveillance: the Minister of Culture covets Dreyman's girlfriend, and is trying to eliminate his rival. Though Wiesler continues his surveillance, he struggles to reconcile his sense of professional duty with his personal integrity, as he finds himself becoming increasingly absorbed by the couple's lives.--Amazon.com

In einer Winternacht kommt K. (Ulrich Mühe) im Dorf an. Seine Auskunft, er sei zum Landvermessen bestellt, wird mit Skepsis quittiert. Ein Bote überbringt eine Nachricht, zwei Gehilfen stellen sich ein, doch kein Weg führt ins Schloß. Der Gemeindevorsteher erklärt K.s Berufung als Verwaltungsirrtum, der Lehrer stellt ihn schließlich als Schuldiener an. K. macht sich Schankkellnerin Frieda (Susanne Lothar) gefügig, um über sie an den Beamten Klamm heranzukommen. Doch je mehr sich K. bemüht, desto weiter entfernt er sich von seinem Ziel und bleibt, was er bei seiner Ankunft war, ein geduldeter Fremder. Als er irgendwann endlich zu einer Unterredung beordert wird, im falschen Zimmer aber vor Erschöpfung einschläft, überhört er den Hinweis, daß das Amt in einer solchen Situation jede Bitte erfüllen würde

"Michael Haneke's controversial thriller watches an affluent couple, their child and dog as they arrive at their lakeside vacation home. Settling into their holiday routine, the family is visited by a pair of clean-cut young men in tennis whites and gloves, who inexplicably turn ruthless and brutal, forcing the family into playing their 'funny games.'"--Container
Funny games( Visual )

3 editions published in 2019 in German and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Haneke's most notorious production, Funny Games spares no detail in its depiction of the agony of a bourgeois family held captive at their vacation home by a pair of white-gloved young men. In a series of escalating 'games,' the sadistic duo subject their victims to unspeakable physical and psychological torture over the course of a night. A home-invasion thriller in which the game's threat of bloodshed is made stomach-churningly real, the film ratchets up shocks even as its executioners interrupt the action to address the audience, drawing attention to the way that cinema milks pleasure from pain and stokes our appetite for atrocity. With this controversial treatise on violence and entertainment, Haneke issued a summation of his cinematic philosophy, implicating his audience in a spectacle of unbearable cruelty"--Container

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
Von allem Anfang an by Christoph Hein( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in German and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die 50er-Jahre im Süden der DDR: Der 15-jährige Pfarrerssohn Daniel darf aus politischen Gründen nicht mehr die Oberschule besuchen. Damit Daniel dennoch sein Abitur machen kann, will sein Vater ihn zu Verwandten nach Westberlin bringen. Vor dem Hintergrund dieser Flucht am Vorabend des Mauerbaus erinnert sich Daniel an die zurückliegenden Jahre und eine Pubertät in der noch jungen DDR. Dabei ist Daniel durchaus nicht als rein fiktive Romanfigur zu verstehen, sondern vielmehr als Alter Ego des großen Theater- und Romanautors Christoph Hein. In neun Episoden erzählt er vom Ende einer Kindheit und zeigt dabei unaufdringlich, wie das Politische immer wieder in eine scheinbar normale Jugend einbricht. Kunstvoll verwebt er in "Von allem Anfang an" Elemente seiner eigenen Biographie mit Fiktivem
Mein Führer die wirklich wahrste Wahrheit über Adolf Hitler by Dani Levy( Visual )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Levy does his best to portray Hitler as a poor devil, an attempt that of course cannot succeed, because someone who admits that he is having a hard time can no longer be a poor devil. And just to make sure than no one will think of accusing him of trivializing the Third Reich or making fun of victims' suffering, Levy uses the family of Jewish actor Grünbaum as a moral counterweight to the Nazis."--Spiegel Online
Jugend ohne Gott by Michael Knof( Visual )

7 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in German and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zu Beginn des Nationalsozialismus in Deutschland. In einem vormilitärischen Ausbildungslager wird ein Schüler aus der Klasse des opportunistischen Gymnasiallehrers Rockstroh ermordet. Dessen humanistische Bildungsideale werden mit einer auf Heldentum gedrillten Klasse konfrontiert. Gleichnishaftes (Fernseh- )Drama nach dem Roman von Ödön von Horváth, der in einigen markanten Details signifikant abgewandelt wird, wobei die für den Roman bedeutsame Anwesenheit eines mahnenden und gütigen Gottes als relevantes Gegenbild zur verführten und verrohten Jugend nahezu ausgespart bleibt. Bestechend vor allem durch die ausgezeichneten Darstellerleistungen in den Hauptrollen.[film-dienst]
