Referencing sixties B-movies like They Saved Hitler's Brain (1968) and The Brain That Wouldn't Die (1962), Ulrike's Brain finds Doctor Julia Feifer (Susanne Sachsse) arriving at an academic conference with an organ box. Inside the box: the brain of Ulrike Meinhof, which was saved by the authorities along with the brains of the three other leaders of the RAF after their deaths in Stammheim prison. Doctor Feifer can communicate telepathically with Ulrike's brain, which is directing her to lead a new feminist revolution. To that end, she is searching for the ideal female body to transplant Ulrike's brain into. At the same time, her arch-rival, Detlev Schlesinger, an extreme right-wing ideologue, arrives at the conference with the ashes of Michael Kühnen, the former German neo-Nazi leader and infamous homosexual who died of AIDS in 1989. When the two Frankenstein's monsters of the extreme left and the extreme right meet, chaos ensues.

WOW. This film was a breath of fresh air! Susanne Sachße and Saskia Timm did awesome job! Susanne Sachße was excellent at playing and does it flawlessly. The body language, facial expressions, etc., he does it perfectly! Saskia Timm was very good at playing his role; bringing charisma, a little humor, and a good amount of authority and responsibility.

Usually I try to be careful with over hyping a film, or setting the expectations too high, as film geeks all are guilty for, however for Bruce La Bruce, this really is not possible.
