Storyline

In October 1977, the leadership of the German leftwing terrorist group Baader-Meinhof, died in a German high-security prison. Their apparent suicides hailed the end of a long and bloody struggle to start a revolution in one of the world's richest democracies. 25 years on In Love With Terror traces this astonishing story through extraordinary interviews with former group members, never-before seen archive footage, secret police reports and obscure government files.

Well worth watching
27 April 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I saw this on Youtube by accident. It's made up of interview clips and archive footage, mainly from the 70's, of Germany's "Baader-Meinhof gang" i.e. Red Army Faction, who targeted German politicians and industry bosses in their terrorist struggle against the evil "imperialist" state, rather like a much deadlier version of the "Weathermen" in the US.

Knowing the German language helps. The narration is sometimes ludicrous and misleading, like when RAF leader Andreas Baader is labeled a "German Charly Manson type" - they may have a bad LSD trip in common, actually. It's not always obvious whom, or if the narrator is citing. The movie title suggests this could be a sensationalist b-movie piece with an agenda, but this first impression is quite false. Thanks to the sparse narration, it's a refreshingly open, balanced and quite fascinating look upon pieces of Germany's half-forgotten, but still controversial history. The RAF may be dead and disarmed, but their slogans and world views are very much alive and kicking.
