The following quiz is a 15-question multiple choice quiz on the 2006 German drama "The Lives of Others" (German: Das Leben der Anderen) directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck and starring Ulrich Mühe that can be used in an English, film studies, or media studies class. This assessment is not a trivia quiz about the story or production anecdotes; it is also not a simple, low-level comprehension quiz based on events in the film. The quiz contains high level, critical thinking questions on the understanding through evaluation levels of Bloom's revised taxonomy model. The quiz assesses a taker's understanding of the film's camera movement, characterization, cinematography, color symbolism, conflict, costume, figurative language, inferences, irony (dramatic and situational), lighting, mise en scene, production or set design, sound, story, and subtext.
