The Baader Meinhof Complex is the incendiary critically acclaimed 2008 crime biopic from Germany. The story is told largely from the point of view of Ulrike Meinhof (Martin Gedeck), a leftist journalist who isn't afraid to publicly express her criticisms against the German government's actions. When a group of students, seemingly mimicking their French counterparts, protest at the arrival of a foreign authority figure and get beaten up by the police, Ulrike realizes something different and shocking is necessary. Not much time passes before she comes in contact with Andreas Baader (Moritz Bleibtreu) and Gudrun Ensslin (Johanna Wokalek), an activist couple leading the Red Army Faction (RAF). When Andreas is arrested, Ulrike comes up with a plan to get him out, effectively becoming a fugitive. Thus the group becomes known as the Baader Meinhof Complex, and its members are the most wanted people in all of Germany. It doesn't take long, however, before the conflicting mentalities inside the group lead to trouble even before their notorious arrest and trial begin.moreless
