Storyline

Stammheim Prison in Stuttgart, West Germany, as the five defendants--Andreas Baader, Ulrike Meinhof, Gudrun Ensslin, Jan-Carl Raspe, and Holger Meins--are brought before the judge and accused of the murder of four US servicemen in a terrorist bombing attack. After a hunger strike at the trial's start, Meins dies. The next to die is Meinhof, an apparent suicide. As the trial stretches on, Baader, Ensslin, and Raspe continuously disrupt the proceedings with accusations that they are being purposely undernourished and spied upon. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Good film
26 August 2003 | by smoothsoulSee all my reviews

In truth I can hardly remember this picture - I saw it more than fifteen years ago at a film festival. But I remember being pretty impressed with it. It uses a kind of documentary realism to tell the story of the Baader-Meinhof gang in their German prison. It makes you wonder if the State should be able to take care of business in secret for the betterment of society -- in other words, it's a blistering indictment of State-sponsored terrorism. Polished, tight, absorbing and moving, it's well worth a look if you get the chance.
