Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars
The 1970s terror campaigns by the Baader Meinhof and the Japanese Red Army groups were perpetrated in the name of international revolution and anti-colonialism. As well as taking first world revolutionaries and their children to third world training camps it led to strange and terrible events like the murderous assault on Israel’s Lod airport by JRA gunmen in 1972 that killed 26 people. In O’Sullivan's fascinating film – worth it alone for the gripping 70's archive material – the daughters of Ulrike Meinhof and the JRA’S Fusako Shigeno consider their mothers’ lives in the service of 'the struggle'.
