Following a talk with the film's original author, we are delighted to present this special preview of The Baader Meinhof Complex. The film stars Moritz Bleibtreu and Martina Gedeck, as Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof, leading an exceptional cast of young German actors while Bruno Ganz puts in a typically strong performance as Horst Herold, the policeman bringing the Faction to justice. The film dodges sensationalism, dealing with the mentality of a group prepared to murder innocents in the name of justice. Stefan Aust's book is adapted by Downfall screenwriter Bernd Eichinger and directed by Uli Edel (Christiane F, Last Exit to Brooklyn).
