This movie, which was also shown on the 30th International Göteborg Film Festival in 2007, tells the story of Hans-Joachim Klein. Having been a terrorist in the 1970s in Germany, he tells us the story of his life.

With easy but impressive words, Klein tells us of his journey. Beginning in Frankfurt with a non-functioning family, developing through the post-war left-wing scene of Germany, Klein-Klein's (as he was called then) "career" found its summit in December 1975 with a kidnapping at the OPEC meeting in Vienna.

He then vanished and lived a life in the underground. Traveling through some Arabic states, Italy and rural France, he turned away from terrorism and later reported himself to the police.

It is worth to watch this in German, as the movie gets a lot of its interest by the Hessian dialect Klein uses. This indicates that terrorism is not a far-away phenomenon, but could be quite near though.

It is worth seeing, especially when being interested in the history of Germany after WWII. And even with the omnipotent background of global terrorism, this is an interesting movie to watch.
