Watch Hitchcock and Donnersmarck

 Description Alfred Hitchcock’s THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (1935) and the 2007 film THE LIVES OF OTHERS (Von Donnersmarck) may not seem closely linked, though they have many loose thematic connections. This week’s blog assignment gives you an opportunity to make your own connection between the two films. What do you find most interesting about the way the films sit side by side? Is there on particular scene or sequence that helps to illustrate this linkage? (If not a scene, then perhaps a motif, cinematic technique, etc.?)
