Rita is working in a railway vehicle factory as part of her second legend, supposedly in 1989. But in one scene, when Rita is walking across the factory yard, one can clearly see car bodies of class 481 EMUs and H-Type metro vehicles, not in production until the late 1990s. See more »
"The Legend of Rita" follows the activities of a young female idealist who runs with a small band of second rate terrorists in West Germany just prior to the end of the Cold War, goes straight, and hides under assumed identities (the legend). A well crafted, technically good Euroflick, "...Rita", equally split between character and story, puts the audience in the awkward position of having to root for a terrorist with only a marginally interesting story to tell. Slightly above par, "...Rita" will appeal most to cinema buffs and those into Euroflicks.
