Une jeunesse allemande

Jean-Gabriel Périot France, 2015

Jegsy's rating of the film A German Youth

Apposite and well made doc exposing the inherent problems of vanguardism by bourgeois youth, who have no idea of not only the material conditions of working class life, but also the psychological manifestations of oppression beyond the abstract. Interesting how then and now the political classes/media marshal and spin the rhetoric of the opposition to suit their nefarious ends, showing why they'll always win.
