The most expensive movie ever made in Germany at the time - and it shows. The attention to detail is incredible, and there's a real energy that propels you through explosive events in the first half. Things calm when the founding members are imprisoned, and courtroom drama kicks in. This is a gripping account of a fascinating period in Germany's post-war history, with brilliant performances all-round. Worth rewatching.
