has got a great lack...
26 February 2003 | by EhrgeizSee all my reviews

A documentary movie about the live of two men, which played a role in Germany's latest history: The mighty banker and economist Alfred Herrhausen, who was killed by a car-bomb,laid by Red Army Faction (RAF) terrorists. And Wolfgang Grams, a RAF-terrorist, who died in a shooting with German elite policists, the GSG 9 of the german Bundesgrenzschutz, under mysterious circumstances.

The movie is well-worked and features interesting friends, relatives and other witnesses (even Ex-Chancellor Helmut Kohl) of the two man. There are also these small clues, which make a documentary great: One businessman remembers resignative, when he and Herrhausen went to the whorehouses. Or theres one former friend of Grams, who was also a leftist, and now owns a small house and a big car, and considers that he also could have been a terrorist.

The problem is, that the director Veiel was just a bit over-ambitious. He wanted to put a plot to the two biographies. And so he compares the characters and tries to show how similar the lifes of the two man were. But Veiel fails: Despite his attempts, theres no invisible band between the banker and the terrorist. They are totally different, except great ambitions burning in their hearts.

This is a good movie though, but I recommend to watch the film "Starbuck", the best of the latest german movies about the RAF.
