Germany in the 1970s: Murderous bomb attacks, the threat of terrorism and the fear of the enemy inside are rocking the very foundations of the still fragile German democracy. The radicalised children of the Nazi generation led by Andreas Baader (Moritz Bleibtreu), Ulrike Meinhof (Martina Gedeck) and Gudrun Ensslin (Johanna Wokalek) are fighting a violent war against what they perceive as the new face of fascism: American imperialism supported by the German establishment, many of whom have a Nazi past. Their aim is to create a more human society but by employing inhuman means they not only spread terror and bloodshed, they also lose their own humanity. The man who understands them is also their hunter: the head of the German police force Horst Herold (Bruno Ganz). And while he succeeds in his relentless pursuit of the young terrorists, he knows he s only dealing with the tip of the iceberg.
Very good movie. Although, I would say it's about 20 minutes too long.Published 26 days ago by WoodWorker233
I really enjoyed this movie, the acting, the story line, the sets, even the history of it all. I learned some here and read further about the RAF . Read morePublished 1 month ago by thefreelifelover
Compare her role in this film to that in North Face -- same actress, but two strikingly different characters!Published 2 months ago by Robert Berry
I had to watch this for my German class. It was rather interesting, but confusing. The subtitles aren't always 100% accurate, but they're close enough.Published 10 months ago by Devin
One of my favorite movies.
Beautiful rendition of the 20th century.
