The Robber

A film by Benjamin Heisenberg

A 2010, 35mm, 16:9, 96 Min.

Synopsis

THE ROBBER tells the true story of a man with many talents: Johann Rettenberger wins marathons and is a professional bank robber. He lives with his girlfriend in Vienna without being found, and sets out repeatedly, driven to stay in motion and motivated by the beauty of a criminal campaign. When the authorities finally close in, he uses his legs in an attempt to escape a large deployment of police officers. Benjamin Heisenberg's second film after his successful SLEEPER portrays the robber on a search for freedom, whose anarchistic life philosophy unavoidably leads to a conflict with society.
