JUSTICE MATTERS

The Young Karl Marx

Le jeune Karl Marx

RAOUL PECK
Germany, France, Belgium, 2017
118 minutes, Color
Official website

Oscar-nominated documentary director Raoul Peck (I Am Not Your Negro) brings his considerable talents to this biopic of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels from the time they meet in 1844 till the rousing moment when they publish the Communist Manifesto in 1848, with Europe about to explode in revolution. Peck portrays the twentysomethings as the dashing young rebels of their day. Marx becomes notorious as he challenges the graybeards of German philosophy. Engels publishes a groundbreaking book about the deplorable condition of the working class in England. At first, the two are wary of each other. Marx sees Engels as a spoiled rich kid. Engels sees Marx as an egotist. They are probably both right. But in a key moment, too rational and too passionate about their beliefs not to realize that they complement each other, they become partners and friends, full of hope, out to change the world.—Miguel Pendás

In German, English and French with English subtitles
