Since I am really interested in history, I was looking forward to see this documentary. There are many really cool features in it, like mixing the interviews, news features from back then and the "action scenes" but unfortunately there are some missing points! For example, after having seen this documentary one might consider the RAF activists to be complete psychos - what's the worth of a documentary when it can't explain their motivations and goals? It just says, well, they were completely ill in the head and that's it. Not much of a "science way" to explain things... Furthermore, "Todesspiel" shows the suicide of the imprisoned RAF activists right after the "Landshut" gets evicted by special force GSG-9. This is a REAL faux-pas! It was NEVER proven, that those activists committed suicide. On the other hand, there are some "hints" that they might have been executed by police men in their cells. I don't claim to say that THIS is the truth, but at least it was never proven WHO killed those prisoners - whether they were killed by cops or by themselves. All in all it is not THAT bad as it might sound right now, but I think a documentary needs to be authentic, and well, in some ways this documentary just isn't.
