The Lives of Others (2007)

I don't know...for most of its running time, this feels like an Afterschool Special about the Stasi. A bit simple. And are the actors playing characters who've grown used to keeping their reactions tamped down...or are they just not very expressive (not good actors) to begin with? Then comes the coda and, I promise you, your eyes will well up.
