Another fine example of the resurgent German cinema. Three idealists kidnap a German businessman, but then what they ask themselves? Ransom is against their principles, while the state, fearing a Baeder Meinhof comeback, take a dim view of such actions and respond accordingly. The story develops into something of a political thriller but one with the lightest of touches. A real delight, aided by superb use of Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah.

The end does not satisfy the means. The end does not justify the means. How many times this truth needs to be re-addressed. But young and idealistic, the "EDUKATORS" as they call themselves victimize the rich and the wealthy, short of the hero of Sherwood forest. Since instead of passing on the loot to the poor, they just pile them up on a heap inside the families' homes. Intertwining plots of sex, infidelity, and disillusionment of purpose, the story ended up confused as well. DANIEL BRUHL did deliver, though. But what's with the bad teeth?
