"I was very surprised about the persistent lesbian theme (in fact men only appear in underparts as oppressors or tricks) as Meinhof was after all a divorced mother of two."
Well, out of the Meinhof biography by Jutta Ditfruth which i find is great, i know that both, Ulrike Meinhof and her mother Ingeborg Meinhof had at least lesbian periods in their lives. Ulrike grew up with her mother and her friend Renate Riemeck after her Father died. when her mother died, she still lived with Miss Riemeck who went on having relationships with women. When Ulrike became older she had a years long secret relationship with a girl called Maria. But her "stepmother" Riemcke never allowed this relationship.
About the film. Ulrike Meinhof wasn't that pleasant with the result of the movie. she didn't like the director. Apart from that, she wanted the girls represented in the film, to act themselves to let the movie appear even more realistic than it however is.
