While not exactly the same thing as the movie Baader Meinhof (which came out at least a year prior to this), it seems to cut into the same themes. If you watch closer though, you will see, that this a different beast. And while the intentions displayed here are really good (and the narrative is pretty straightforward), it lacks something that I saw in the other movie.

Decent enough effort is being made in telling the story (with the acting supporting this), but in the end something seems to be missing. It is nice seeing a movie being made on that scale in Germany (even though you wish they would have gone another route) and will appeal to quite a few people for sure.
