For a film about revolutionaries, this plays it far too safe.
It's an intelligent, complex, persuasive film...
This is a shrewd two-pronged portrait of psychological unravelling against a vast political backdrop, with a daring, disturbing performance from Lauzemis.
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.
Has the same slightly flavourless character as Uli Edel's 2008 film The Baader Meinhof Complex.
The themes foment, yet never quite ferment into a convincing brew.
A very, very solid, if a tad unadventurous, debut feature from Andres Veiel.
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.

A tragic and moving film with great performances by August Diehl as Bernward Vesper and especially Lena Lauzemis as Gudrun Ensslin.
Great score by Annette Focks.
