Ratings & Reviews

  1. Dada Kubin's rating of the film A German Youth

    A collage of materials around the first generation of Rote Armee Fraktion. Old news footage&interviews, but also lots of film experiments from the terrorists' days at the film school. The film gives a vivid picture of the 60s&70s' atmosphere. It's centred around Meins, Meinhof and (perhaps too much) Horst Mahler, whereas Ensslin and Baader remain almost in the background, perhaps due to lack of materials.

  2. affasf's rating of the film A German Youth

    Mild overall, but remarkable anti-sensationalistic reminder to footage telluric vehicularity – the unapologetic beauty of fire engulfing ideology.

  3. José Neves's rating of the film A German Youth

    "Indie" cinema # 9: a German romanticism. It's curious, but undeniable, that to look from this distance towards the events recorded by the film, in this period of economic imperatives becoming imperialist, it sets off a connection with the characters that some German literature consolidated, as Kleist's Michael Kohlhaas.The film has the virtue of not denying it, with rare and essential documents well processed.
