Une jeunesse allemande

Jean-Gabriel Périot France, 2015

dionysus67's rating of the film A German Youth

Extremely dense depiction of events around the operation of the Red Army Faction. With the Nazi wounds hovering over the Adenauer government, the terrorist actions reveal a manifesto of anger against all pillars of society. With apt cinematic insertions (Kluge, Antonioni's consumer society in Zabriskie Point, Fassbinder's Germany in Autumn) and great footage from the then protagonists, it's an unsettling film.
