The Lives of Others (2006) - Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck

Başroldeki adamın acayip derecede Kevin Spacey'e benzediği, beni baya ağlatan, finaline bayıldığım, gereksizce beklettiğim için kendime kızdığım müthiş film. Harikaydı ya, olağanüstüydü! Böyle temiz film izlememiştim ne zamandır. Dram, gizem ve polisiye filmlerinde alıştığım o pis serüven yoktu bu filmde. Bu film çok başkaydı, nasıl anlatsam bilemiyorum, kusursuzdu. Ne bir gereksiz sahne var, ne bir soru işareti, ne kitleye hitap etsin diye yapılmış saçma şeyler, ne kötü oyunculuklar, ne tarihi yanlış aktarma… Yoktu yani, bu filmin senaryosu hakikaten olup olabileceğinin en iyisi olmuş. Oyunculuklar zaten filmin de konusu olan tiyatrodan çıkmış gibiydi, ne çok abartılı ne de çok soğuktu. Zaten Martina Gedeck adlı hatunu Der Baader Meinhof Komplex'den bilenler bilir, o tek başına bile yeterdi yani. 

Yani aklımda bir sürü şey var ama sinema sanatını yazıya dökmek zor ve oldukça saçma. Bu güzelliği anlamanız için mutlaka izlemenizi tavsiye ederim. Ben filmi dönem filmi diye sosyalizm eleştirisi var diye bahaneler uydurarak ertelemiştim, aptallık etmişim. O yüzden sizde bu hataya düşmeyin hemen açın izleyin. Hem inandığımız doğruların insanlar tarafından kirletildiği dönemleri çok iyi yansıtan, inançlarımızı sorgulatan, seyirciyi senaryodaki ikilemlerin etkisiyle aldığımız özel kararları gözden geçirmemize neden olacak başarılı bir yapıt. Mutlaka izleyin.

Beğendiğim soundtracklerden;

Diamond tiara, circa 1905

Designed as a series of seven graduated circles millegrain-set with rose stones, each inset with a rose and circular-cut diamond wreath, to a cushion-shaped diamond center set in cut-down collets, further decorated by foliate motifs similarly-set, the detachable circular elements can be worn as brooches, fittings deficient; the cushion-shaped diamond collets unscrew and fit a necklace front mount.

By family tradition, this tiara was acquired in Copenhagen in connection with a visit of Kaiser Wilhelm II. Dr. Victor Parry Amadeus Graf Henckel von Donnersmarck (1854-1916) was envoyé extraordinaire et ministre plénipotentiaire at the German Embassy in Copenhagen, a location frequently visited by Wilhelm II during his yearly trips to the North of Europe (Norlandreisen) on board of his yacht Hohenzollern. Etiquette in those days required ladies to wear tiaras not only at Court, but also at formal occasions and certainly an event at the presence of the Kaiser would have made wearing a tiara mandatory.

The Henckel von Donnersmarck is an old family from Silesia. Lazarus II Henckel von Donnersmarck
