Did you check if the DVD has a 2nd audio track and alternative subtitles?
It was I think the Director's Cut—we had to flip the DVD, but I don't think it was five and a half hours. The version we got from Netflix had subtitles available in English, French and Spanish, but I couldn't make it play the soundtrack in anything but English. Anyway, even if I didn't get any German language bonuses, it was a great movie and well worth watching. The funny part was that the soundtrack and the subtitles often were completely different, especially in regard to profanity—the subtitles would be cussing a blue streak, while the soundtrack was very proper, so maybe it helped to have both.

The Lives of Others is coming next, and it states that it is definitely in German so I'm looking forward to that. I've also found a program by the Goethe Institute on public tv here—unfortunately it's pretty advanced, but it's a good sign they may eventually show others at a more basic level.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
