i am also learning German in üni. and we watching sometimes German movies for listening , i can advice to you ; Barfuss, a Romantic comedie but a little bit unordinary and nicht so langweilig wie ein politischer Film ;)
Must admit, I regretted watching this film. I wanted to practise my German listening skills and got a bit depressed in the end. Characters are bleak, with terrible barnets, and the film is too slow and far too serious. I wont become a political activist after this one that's for sure.
LIked the non glamorisation of violence while indicating the violence of the capitalist state... centering on Bernward Vesper was smart.. no political cliches and a determined attempt to show how and why people in that historical period might travel from moderate social democratic reformism to consideration of extreme political violence... well located in terms of \Germany's post war history John Baxter
A drama about the love story between Bernward Vesper, son of official Nazi novelist Will Vesper, and Gudrun Ensslin, one of the members of the Red Army Faction terrorist group. A good study of a generation stuck between history and politics.
