The RAF (Red Army Faction) was the biggest and most brutal terror organization in post-war West Germany. 30 years after the “German Autumn” and Baader's suicide, the myths and mysteries continue to grow rather than diminish.
ANDREAS BAADER – LIFE OF A PUBLIC ENEMY looks explicitly at Baader's private life in archive footage and facts - some of which have not been previously revealed. For the first time, his daughter's mother, Ello Michel, reads from the love letters Baader sent her. The film portrays ANDREAS BAADER as a spoiled mommy´s boy and a narcissistic attention seeker devoid of all moral scruples. A man who tactically and politically totally focused on his goals, which he pursued mercilessly and with utmost violence. When he finally was arrested in 1972, Baader had the aura of a fallen popstar.
