Re: Last foreign language movie you saw, and your rating of it!
Das Leben der Anderen (The Lives of Others).
I loved it. I found it a chillingly taut and yet dramatically engaging film that actually made me believe in the redemptive power of art and human relationships instead of rolling my cynical eyes. The ending was one of the most poignant I've seen in recent films.
Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)
"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
