I found Uli Edel’s 2008 gripping political drama, “Der Baader Meinhof Komplex” [Eng. Title: The Baader Meinhof Complex] quite informative actually – until this film, I only vaguely remember the RAF [Rote Armee Fraktion, or Red Army Faction], an utlra left-wing group responsible for some high-profile terrorist attacks in West Germany and France, through occasional TV news bulletins in the 80’s.

This film tells us a bit about its formation in 1970, and focuses particularly on the lives of some of its key founder-members. Excellently directed, edited and cinematographed – it was nominated for both Oscar and BAFTA that year – the main actors also complement the film with some fine performances. I also felt the sound was masterfully engineered – and watching the BluRay version certainly helped. The film is Highly Recommended Viewing..!

Nude Scene 1:
A successful and well respected journalist, Ulrike Meinhof, portrayed by Martina Gedeck is in a nude beach with children and hubby when a young woman from work comes along and reminds the hubby about a party that evening. I don’t know actress name – not all character names are mentioned in the film credits.

Nude Scene 2:
This is an interesting scene – Gudrun Ensslin, one of the founding members, played by sexy Johanna Wokalek is in the bath when a stranger, fresh after a beating from Police enters – he wants to join the RAF. When he enquires if he could have a bath later, she asks him to join her citing the hot water shouldn’t be wasted. Her boyfriend Andreas Baader, another founder member, enters…

Nude Scene 3:
This is a funny scene – Martina Gedeck, Susanne Bormann, Nadja Uhl along with some key RAF members flee W.Germany to get trained in Lebanon (possibly by the PLA – not sure). The Arab guys are shocked to see these girls arrive in skimpy attire. The commander has had enough when the girls and boys decide to ‘boycott’ training for a day and sunbathe in the nude. He asks them to get dressed up, but the girls argue that freedom should also include free sexual expression – oh I so love the 70’s..!

 

Nude Scene 4:
Brief Nudity – Wihle many key members are in prison awaiting trial, another founder member Brigitte Mohnhaupt, played by Nadja Uhl, gets released after spending 5 years in prison. Desperate to have sex, she proposition’s her contact.
