A haunting look at a woman's move off the political fence
21 March 2000 | by (Gloucestershire England) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie twice and enjoyed it enormously. The stuff on the rad/left culture of Germany in the late sixties is wittily constructed. Often ironic comments by Ulrike's friends are strangely moving. The narrative device, a "letter" to Meinhof's daughter, doesn't withstand too much scrutiny but does provide a neutral framework and is an interesting way of recontextualising the famous terrorist in the bourgeois background where she grew to political maturity.
