Again something about history however this occurred not long ago.
It’s this spy thriller and can I just say .. I have a crush on Martin ❤
So here’s what It’s about:
Deutschland 83 is an eight-episode German television series starring Jonas Nay who plays Martin a 24 year old residing in East Germany. In 1983 he’s sent to the West as an undercover spy for the HVA, the foreign intelligence agency of the Stasi. His mission is to imitate an aide-de-camp to a senior West German officer, and get ahold of American plans for attacking East Germany.
Not only does this series educate us on the socialist regime, you learn about the Stasi officers cruel ideologies and ways of torturing others for information, blackmailing and brutal killings. Also, there’s this peace movement in the west which turns out to have been infiltrated by Soviet agents.
You understand the Stasi agent on a human level. I mean yes they can be cruel but they have these emotions that are unveiled to everyone. You think they’re robots run by someone at the top but they feel as much as everyone It’s just they need to withdraw those emotions back into themselves and keep a perpetual stone cold face. That’s what makes it soo real.
There is this one scene though, a bit cheery where Martin is waiting for the army general parked in a street. He’s approached by someone with a walkman – Martin has no idea what it is but when he puts on the headphones … Aww you’ll have to see it below . It’s great!
Ohh and hes allergic to cats :’)
