    Well shot , and an interesting period of time, I watched this in the same weekend as Max Manus Man of war and Das Untergang all of which I found fascinating. However I never connected with any of the characters in this movie and as a result found myself willing it conclusion. Indeed a well made piece of cinema just not a very interesting experience. Its been out on DVD for months in the Uk.

    Fascinating history, very good movie -- but demanding, and its lack of easy answers will frustrate some. Lessons about 21st century terrorism are implicit, but not overly stressed.
  2. A long but powerful true-life drama of 1970s German terrorists features masterful storytelling and bravura performances.

    An explosive performance by Johanna Wokalek gives some relief to an otherwise long and humdrum series of characters.
