"Eleven leading filmmakers collaborated on this protest against Fascist tendencies in West Germany by reflecting on the tragic events of autumn 1977, when public official Hanns Martin Schleyer was kidnapped and murdered by the Baader-Meinhof group, whose members mysteriously died in prison. The contents of this quasi-documentary, omnibus film range from an elegiac sequence of the burial of the prisoners to newsreel clips of Rommel's cortege and a fictitious argument among TV executives about a controversial production of Antigone. In the amazing Fassbinder sequence, he interviews his mother, who had endorsed the dictatorship, then physically abuses his boyfriend. Political history and film history intersect in this dynamic film that deftly combines art and politics"--Distributor website

Filling their days with endless drilling, the soldiers of Fortezza Bastiani spend the long nights wondering about an enemy no one has ever seen. As the days stretch into months, the strain of waiting for attack takes its toll on Drago's comrades: sadistic major Mattis, sardonic Lieutenant Simeon, cynical medic Rovine, and humiliated Captain Hortiz, who lives with the shame of having once sounded the alarm against an attack that vanished before anyone else could see."--Container

"An imaginative, symbolic drama with political overtones, Die Hamburger Krankheit postulates an affliction that is attacking the citizenry in Hamburg and threatening to spread like the bubonic plague. By coincidence, there is a medical conference taking place in the city at the time of the outbreak, and one of the doctors (Helmut Griem) does not agree with the others about how to cure the illness. Then this doctor and several others start heading South, presumably to escape the affliction. Along the way, they encounter many strange events, are stopped by "disinfectant" crews, some are gunned down, and others sell out their ideals. In the end, this undefined affliction could be of the moral variety, or philosophical, or political, or not, adding nuances to the unfolding events."--Allmovie
