Overview

One man's obsessive search for excitement leads him to a life of crime in this drama inspired by a true story. Johann Rettenberger Andreas Lust is a talented long-distance runner who frequently competes in marathons and is hooked on the endorphin rush of running and the thrill of competition. For Johann, nothing comes close to matching the lift he gets from running except his other hobby -- robbing banks. Armed with a shotgun and a mask, Johann commits a series of hit-and-run bank heists, less interested in the money than the way the danger makes him feel. Johann hides his criminal obsessions from his girlfriend, Erika Franziska Weisz, who imagines he's broke and out of work, but as he becomes increasingly addicted to bank robbery, he loses his sense of caution and takes bigger risks. Der Räuber aka The Robber was an official selection at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival.
