What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film Birgitt Haas Must Be Killed

    A film that continues the interrogation about the terrorist movements of the second half of the XX century, as "Deutschland im Herbst" and "Die Dritte Generation", but more novelistic and narrative, finding in its formulation the codes of a genre that became known as the "polar" (French cop movies), here subverted and, in this sense, magnified. Birgitt Haas is Lisa Kreuzer, a major actress of that period.
