In the scene where the RAF members are filming each other with a Super-8 camera on a roof-top in Paris, the camera model is a Canon 310XL. This camera wasn't introduced until August 1975, but the scene is set in 1969. See more »
I was disappointed by this movie, maybe because i had the wrong expectations.
My expection was to have a portrait about the person "Andi Baader", maybe how and why he became what he was. But it seems more like drifting away from the historical happenings into an "0815-gangster-movie"... including "a peaceful meeting of the opponents" (the meeting Krone - Baader during night on the road!) the death of Baader is so far away from reality... more in an idealistic gun-hero image "alone against the world" ...the abduction and assassination of Martin Schleyer is missing, too. Baader is an political thriller playing in a moving period of German history, using Names of real RAF-Members, but not displaying it in a historical "retrospective", but in a fictional story
