A wasted opportunity
21 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

There was a good story in here waiting to get out but the director failed to find it. There was a huge amount of back-story to the two main people but none of it turned out to be at all relevant.

There was no known connection between Wolfgang Grams [the terrorist] and Alfred Herrhausen of the Deutsche Bank [the terrorism victim]. The film-makers would have been better served if instead of following the story of Grams they had followed the alleged killers of Herrhasusen - while no one has been arrested in connection with his murder, some group must have claimed responsibility [RAF?].

The revelation late in the film that Herrhausen wanted to erase debts from the third world, and was possibly in a position to enable that, made him a sympathetic character. He also seemed to be causing problems with his peers at Deutsche Bank through what was seen as an insane, liberal concept. His murder seemed to be a very stupid choice for an anti-capitalist terrorist act.

It was two seperate stories and made for unsatisfying viewing.
