Maxi, the survivor of a terrorist attack, joins the beguiling student Karl and becomes part of a European youth movement; one that aims for nothing less than seizing power.I take the bad reviews here are due to this film either not are being understood, or that some refuse to take it in – the danger of youth wanting to change society from what it is today, maybe drastically. It’s not a coincidence this film is made by Germans. It comes with a warning.A reference to this film would be The Wave, which is filmed both by Amercans and Germans, based on a true story.This movie starts off very interesting, and within 15 minutes I’m sold.We see a young couple driving across the border into Germany hiding a refugee which they smuggle in. Then we wind maybe 20 years forward, where we see the same family being freak hit by a terrorist attack. And this leads to us following the daughter Maxi and father being left broken. The daughter is being approached by journalists and others, among them a very charming an pretty young man, in whom she involves.The film is well mde, but doesn’t overexplain. It’s down to you as a viewer to decide what you see. I think many modern viewers watch movies while they look at their mobile phones. This makes them need aoverexplaining to get the point of a movie. They are easily confused by narratives and jumps in time.This film gives warnings. Warnings which makes me think of the environmental movement more than nazi- or terrorist-movements, but this is fiction which comes with a warning, put into an interesting story. Just watch it with an open mind!
