'Das leben der Anderen' de Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, 2006

[Georg Dreyman]
The State's head office for Statistics on Hans Beimler St. counts everything, knows everything: how many shoes I buy per year: 2.3, how many books I read in a year: 3.2, and how many students graduate every year with an 4.0 GPA: 6,347. But there is one number not registered,perhaps because such a figure hurts even the bureaucrats: suicides. If you called the Beimler St. office and asked, "How many people between the Elbe and Oder rivers, between the Baltic Sea and Ore Mnts. were driven to death from desperation?" Then our oracle of numbers remains silent, and probably writes down your full name for the State Security, those grey men who take care of our country's security and happiness. Since 1977 our country has ceased counting cases of suicide."Murdering oneself". That's what they call it.
