Uneven and disjointed, the film complements but does not compliment The Baader-Meinhof Complex. It could have been much better. It should have been much better.
A drama about the love story between Bernward Vesper, son of official Nazi novelist Will Vesper, and Gudrun Ensslin, one of the members of the Red Army Faction terrorist group. A good study of a generation stuck between history and politics.
Quite an interesting take on the matter, esp from the director who made Blackbox BRD. Also, I'm a sucker for well-made dancing scenes, so yeah. I liked it.
important and interesting topic but could have been better
