"For me, "The Baader Meinhof Complex" is the third part of a trilogy about violence. "Last Exit to Brooklyn" is about social violence; "The Baader Meinhof Complex" is about political violence. And "Christiane F." is about the violence we commit against ourselves. If you watch "Christiane F." more closely, you can see a single photograph hung up above the bed in the junkie apartment. It's a portrait of Ulrike Meinhof! At the time I put it there myself, without knowing exactly why it had to be Ulrike of all people. Now I know why!" - from baadermeinhofmovie.com, Sept. 24, 2009
