Une jeunesse allemande

Jean-Gabriel Périot France, 2015

David R Williams's rating of the film A German Youth

What happens when words fail? When your verbal raging against the machine falls on at best deaf ears and apathy, or at worst, scorn and physical harm? Does one slink back to a mainstream existence? Or does one take up arms and speak the language of the oppressor? Powerful and thought provoking.
