Baader

Deutschland 2001/2002 Spielfilm

Summary

Baader

The rebellious youth of the sixties, aided by an idealistic and drug-enhanced openness, poured out into the streets by the thousands to protest against the system and the war in Vietnam.

For some, this idealistic movement was not enough: they became active and violent revolutionaries, organizing such terrorist groups as the Black Panthers and the Red Brigades. In Germany, a young and disaffected radical by the name of Andreas Baader was soon to become the leader of one of the most dangerous terrorist groups in Europe, the Baader-Meinhof Gang, later known as the Red Army Faction. At the age of 24, Andreas Baader is again busted for car theft, this time landing a three-month prison sentence and further deepening his hatred of authority and his antagonism toward the “oppressive system”. Fed up with useless demonstrations, Baader resolutely plans to hit the establishment in a far more radical way. Together with his lover and soul mate, Gudrun Ensslin, and two comrades, he firebombs department stores in Frankfurt. Police Superintendent Kurt Krone, a socialist who sympathizes with Baader’s cause but not his tactics, takes charge of the investigation. Sentenced to prison and temporarily released, Baader compels his comrades into fleeing to Paris.
