Von Trotta also shows us Rosa Luxemburg the person: sometimes euphoric with the hope of socialism, sometimes in dark and lonely despair at the injustice of capitalism and the horrors of war, in love and out of love, and dealing with political infighting. A masterpiece of political and personal biography. £4 entry on the door.
