The Robber

A film by Benjamin Heisenberg
Starring Andreas Lust, Franziska Weisz and Florian Wotruba

The true story of Johann Rettenberger, a marathon athlete who developed robbing banks as a hobby.

A champion marathoner leads a double life as a serial bank robber, sprinting between fixes (and away from police cavalcades) as many as three times a day. ‘The Robber’ is a lean, visceral study of pathological compulsion from Austrian director Benjamin Heisenberg, featuring a riveting central performance by Andreas Lust.
