LIked the non glamorisation of violence while indicating the violence of the capitalist state... centering on Bernward Vesper was smart.. no political cliches and a determined attempt to show how and why people in that historical period might travel from moderate social democratic reformism to consideration of extreme political violence... well located in terms of \Germany's post war history John Baxter
Must admit, I regretted watching this film. I wanted to practise my German listening skills and got a bit depressed in the end. Characters are bleak, with terrible barnets, and the film is too slow and far too serious. I wont become a political activist after this one that's for sure.
