A respectless characteristic of the Franz Josef Strauss
In 1980, the German politician Franz Josef Strauss ran for Chancellor against Helmut Schmidt. He was arch-conservative and considered as un-electable by many people, though he was tremendously popular in his native Bavaria.
This movie showed Franz Josef Strauss in a very respectless way - by quoting him and showing old speeches. Some cinemas refused to show the movie.
In the end, Strauss lost the elections.
