While living in Leipzig I used to go and see the spy photographs displayed in der Runden Ecke Museum which was the former East German Stasi secret police headquarters. I spend many hours analyzing these pictures. Sometimes I feel like I could’ve been a good spy.
There is a great German movie "Das Leben der Anderen" / "The life of others" An agent of the secret police, conducting surveillance on a writer and his lover, finds himself becoming increasingly absorbed by their lives.
