Dramatisation of the inner workings of 1970s radically left-wing German terrorist group The Red Army Faction (RAF). Moritz Bleibtreu, Martina Gedeck and Johanna Wokalek star as Andreas Baader, Ulrike Meinhof and Gudrun Ensslin, the trio at the core of the organisation, which carried out bombings, robberies, kidnappings and assassinations throughout the late 1960s and 70s in a misguided attempt to redress the wrongs of the Nazi generation. Bruno Ganz co-stars as Horst Herold, the head of the German police who must gain an understanding into the young terrorists reasoning even as he hunts them down. Synopsis Germany in the 1970s: Murderous bomb attacks, the threat of terrorism and the fear of the enemy inside are rocking the very foundations of the still fragile German democracy. The radicalized children of the Nazi generation lead by Andreas Baader (Moritz Bleibtreu), and Ulrike Meinhof (Martina Gedeck) and Gudrun Ensslin (Johanna Wokalek) are fighting a violent war against what they perceive as the new face of fascism: American imperialism supported by the German establishment. Their aim is to create a more human society but by employing inhuman means they not only spread terror and bloodshed, they also lose their own humanity. --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.
