West Germany, early 1960s. Star crossed lovers Bern and Gudrun begin a life long affair in the stifling atmosphere of provincial Germany. Setting out to challenge the establishment they become part of the global uprising joining forces with leftist writers and political activists. By the late 60s Gudrun has joined the gang lead by Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof and Bern risks his sanity to finally writing a novel to change the world. An emotional true story of an explosive era starring August Diehl (Inglourious Basterds (2009), A Hidden Life (2019), Salt (2010)).
Before I went to see this film on film festival "Free Zone" at Belgrade, I knew pretty much nothing about Baader-Meinhof Group. The synopsis sounded rather interesting and I had free evening - so why not? I was really surprised. I don't know how true to events this film is, but it is really effective. I left cinema open mouthed and that means that film done it's job well. Acting is believable and story is easy to follow even for someone who, like me, doesn't know anything about events. It's shocking story but obviously important and I after seeing the film I really got interested in subject.
All in all, I have only good things to say about this film and as for the story itself, I suggest you to watch it all yourself.
