Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For a film about revolutionaries, this plays it far too safe."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"The film effectively conveys the way in which key events from the Sixties radicalised them both and propelled Gudrun into the arms of charismatic activist Andreas Baader."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"A very, very solid, if a tad unadventurous, debut feature from Andres Veiel."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"It's an intelligent, complex, persuasive film..."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Has the same slightly flavourless character as Uli Edel's 2008 film The Baader Meinhof Complex."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"If you already own The Baader Meinhof Complex and you're looking for the other half of the definitive Red Army Faction double-bill, here it is."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"This is a shrewd two-pronged portrait of psychological unravelling against a vast political backdrop, with a daring, disturbing performance from Lauzemis."
‑ Emma Dibdin, Total Film
"The themes foment, yet never quite ferment into a convincing brew."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
