    Yes I found them to be more of a family of robber or criminal rather than left wing terrorist. But put that aside, still I felt the story and point of view are interesting. A lot of time you get a great insight to view adults world from an adolescents eyes.

    It certainly is an acquired taste but it follows an interesting family drama that is entirely unique to Germany. Christian Petzold as a methodical and observational style that can be powerful even if it is not what American audiences are often accustomed to.

    movie follows life of 15 year old girl, who live not so ordinary life, cause her parents are probably ex-RAF members and they living underground hiding all the time... it's a good movie set in 90's i would guess, cause still were using DM not euros

    Slow moving and rather uneventful drama about a family on the run. Julia Hummer takes center stage as the rebellious teenager and does a believable job, but not a whole lot happens in this tale. Interesting from the standpoint you want to see how the story concludes. Well it does so rather abruptly, but not before you tortured through two hours of viewing.

    Nice work~ Mistrust is always the main theme in his films! He is such kind of director, which would not like to speak out every detail clearly, and require audiences to observe and feel by themselves somehow. For instance, the scene which they count the money left behind... there is certain amount left, why do they need to rob again? He likes using Ambiente and images to tell stories, this is somehow a post German New Wave style.

    a movie talking about a girl , her parents & her also need to hiding, so what they doing in their life, & what can & what can't they do.... it's not her faults, but she need to handle that much.

    Extraordinary story, portrait of a generation just as it also is a portray of family life. A very strong debut by Christian Petzold
