La Bande à Baader

La Bande à Baader

A Feature film by Uli Edel

Release in France : 12/11/2008

    Synopsis

    In the 1970s, a series of bloody and fatal bomb attacks take Germany by storm. The terrorist menace and the fear of the interior enemy rocks the very foundations of the still fragile democracy.

    Led by Andreas Baader, Ulrike Meinhof and Gudrun Ensslin, a new hardened generation violently goes to war against what it perceives as the new face of facism: American imperalism upheld by members of the German establishment, some of whom have a Nazi past. Their objective is to create a more human society. But, by employing inhuman means, by spreading terror and spilling blood, they lose their own humanity. The man who understands them is also the one hunting them down: the head of the German police Horst Herold. And even if he manages to capture the young terrorists, Herold knows that they're just the tip of the iceberg.
