Critic Reviews for A German Youth

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (8)

  • This documentary is fitfully thought-provoking, and particularly good at illustrating political fault lines of the time.

    December 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Fiendishly researched and smartly constructed, "A German Youth" is a formidable piece of documentary detective work focusing on a small but significant historical moment that continues to matter.

    October 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This densely layered documentary reveals how members of a disillusioned post-war generation gradually transformed into left-wing militants whose actions would have deadly consequences for all involved.

    November 15, 2018 | Full Review…
  • How refreshing to have a director refuse black-and-white conclusions, knowing that formulating questions is the best way to probe the past and its ramifications.

    November 15, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It's a compelling portrait that masterfully tracks down and assembles footage to document the radicalization of youth in a seemingly stable society on the verge of teetering into oblivion.

    February 21, 2020 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • A German Youth presents the historical evidence and leaves the audience to form their own opinions and draw their own conclusions about how and why the Red Army Faction came to be and how and why they should be remembered.
