Performers, Cast and Crew:
New York Times - 08/21/2009
"A taut, unnerving, forcefully unromantic fictional film about a West German terrorist group whose founders ran bloodily amok in the 1970s..."
Box Office - 08/27/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] must-see....The action sequences are vivid and explicit, without seeming sensationalistic."
Los Angeles Times - 08/28/2009
"[A] fascinating hybrid of a film....BAADER MEINHOF does capture the sometimes delusional passion of the times..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 09/09/2009
"The film is an impressive period re-creation....Ganz effortlessly brings all the weight of his distinguished career to this role."
Director Uli Edel assembles an impressive cast--including Moritz Bleibtreu, Martina Gedeck, and Bruno Ganz--for this adaptation of Stefan Aust's nonfiction book. In Berlin in 1967, a horrific riot inspires a woman named Ulrike Meinhof to join forces with Andreas Baader to battle their government. The pair moves from activism into terrorism, as they lead the group known as the Red Army Faction, aka the Baader-Meinhof Group.
