Disappointing documentary.
30 January 2019 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

I was looking forward to watch this documentary about the Rote Armee Fraktion or RAF (The Red Army Faction), the German revolutionary terrorist group founded in 1970 by Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof. The RAF or the Baader-Meinhof Group was a far-left terrorist group responsible for 34 deaths, mostly during bombings, assassinations, kidnappings, bank robberies and shoot-outs with police over the course of three decades. The documentary consists out of archive footage from that time, so mostly in black and white and from poor quality. To me there was just too much political speeches that no-one understands, or that are just not interesting enough. I understand a bit of German and I speak French but even then the discussions they have are just boring to watch. Only the very last part of the documentary was a bit interesting but that wasn't enough to make this a good documentary.
