Frequently Bought Together
A film by Bruce LaBruce. Gudrun, the charismatic leader of a group of international terrorists, engages a band of impressionable young men in the fight against war, oppression, capitalism and Corn Flakes. The Reich kidnaps the son of Germany's wealthiest banker in an attempt to kick-start their cause, but Gudrun's desire to embrace 'radical chic' and destroy the bourgeois construct of sexual identity sets everything spinning out of control.

Overlong, appalling acting, dire script, all in all a total load of rubbish. I have purchased some low budget movies over the years that have been surprisingly good. This was not one of them. The actaul idea and storyline could have been made into someting really quite excellent but this film never delivers. I would ask for my money back had I seen it at the cinema.
I have given one star as I cannot give less. I suppose I could say the odd sex scence was erotic.
I would not bother with this one.
In short: The Raspberry Reich is a film which explores what LaBruce calls "terrorist chic", cult dynamics and the power of homosexual expression. An "uncut" version of the film has been released, titled "The Revolution Is My Boyfriend", edited by the gay pornographic film company Cazzo Film including erotic scenes edited out in the original version.
The scenes are somewhat funny when they are making "love", but the movie is filled with slogans used to convey the politics of the Raspberry Reich. It's bit strange & confusing for general audience. But if you loved such movies as Hustler White [DVD]  or for that matter OTTO; Or Up With Dead People [DVD]  you must certainly will love this one as well! So in conclusion if you are an open minded person, who is certain of his/hers sexuality - see this movie: rent it or buy it!

It's rubbish! The acting was dire, the constant yelling of the main female made you want to press mute all the time. The well overlong and tedious sex scene at the beginning where she bonked everywhere, yelling and screaming,made me so many times want to press stop. Just stop the endless dirge. But I thought, maybe it gets better... maybe all will be alright....but nope. Maybe it was funny and sending over some ironic message, I don't really know as my attention wandered to other exciting things like counting the hairs on my arms and wondering if it was going to rain. It was a mixture of noise, annoying words floating across the screen that she had just said so really didn't need to be there and bits of long boring rhetoric and bare flesh. Guess if you just wanted to see some male bodies and a bit of sex, turning the sound off and pressing forward will give you some of that, but all in all I can't really see why anyone would wanna watch this again. If you like torturing yourself, by all means watch this, if you don't, there are most probably about a million much better things you could be spending your pounds, dollars, euros, yens, whatever on! Avoid big time!
The self-style "Sixth Generation of the Baader-Meinhof Gang", later referred to in the film as "The Raspberry Reich" kidnaps the son of a wealthy industrialist, with a view to making demands of the said industrialist. In moving towards making those demands we learn of the dogma of the leader of the group (Gudrun) which includes the importance of personal life in revolution, including the breaking of heterosexual and possessive sexual norms. This she claims as the Homosexual Intifada, which did provide a rather humorous basis for the movie.
Director Bruce La Bruce was also the writer, and it's hard to see in which role he was worse. There were some classic lines: "How many times have I told you that homosexuality is only to be used for revolutionary purposes?", "The Revolution is my boyfriend" and "Heterosexuality is the opiate of the masses", amongst others. But really the script could have been written on the back of a beer coaster.
It was remarkable that Director Bruce La Bruce could have amassed such a list of truly ordinary actors. I did not know Susanne Sachsse (aka Susanne Sachße) who played the lead female role, and so was very surprised to learn that she had starred in over 30 movies, and in fact had professional training. I can only put it down to bad direction - there is simply no other way to get such gogglingly-bad acting. Okay, so I made up the word gogglingly-bad, but you get my drift.
Out of the 30-something credited actors, only one stood out, and that was Pünktchen who played the Drag Queen Bouncer. A small part, but oh so convincing.
To talent of the other kind, and this movie was chockers with it.Read more ›
