This provocative film anthology contains nine short fiction and documentary films believed to have had great influence on the development of New German Cinema. Each of the five was directed by a different German filmmaker and are set during the politically tempestuous summer of 1977 in West Germany when terrorism ran rampant. Filmmakers include Fassbinder, Boll, Schlondorff, Sinkel, Kluge (who narrates) and more. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"At its best, the film argues that it's impossible to have a 'coherent' left wing position on terrorism."
‑ , Time Out
"Though events happened over thirty years ago, the film is still relevant, exciting, urgent and mind-blowing."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"It's sometimes startlingly beautiful, often obscure and confusing, sometimes funny and mostly disturbing, as it should be."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"A compelling and historically significant addition to German cinema, but those unfamiliar with that country's political situation may find it difficult to relate to."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It is, of course, wildly uneven (and sometimes insufferable), but there is an urgency and engagement in each of the episodes."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
