Audience Reviews for The People vs. Fritz Bauer

  • May 08, 2018
    Bauer's engagement in hunting down Nazis in the 1950s makes for a pretty interesting plot. Unfortunately, the delivery, especially by camerawork and music is sometimes closer to a TV movie than a motion picture. Same goes for some minor actors. The sleazy journalist or genderbending hooker feel entirely out of place in this story, even though they're probably based on true events. Still, a pretty interesting look at Germany at a time when the country wanted to move on but still had some leftover Nazis in their midst.
