Appeared in Library Journal on 2003-04-01:
An apolitical young woman (the superb Angela Winkler) is callously interrogated by cops and besmirched by a tabloid reporter after spending the night with a wanted terrorist. Basing his work on the Heinrich Boll novella, Volker Schlondorff (The Tin Drum) and codirector Margarethe von Trotta have fashioned an exceptionally scalding indictment of overzealous police methods and yellow journalism. For all collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
