Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 78: Wed Mar 19

The Robber (Heisenberg, 2009): Goethe Institute, 7pm

A sneak preview of a film that gets a release in Britain on March 21st.

Here is the Goethe Institute introduction to a film nominated for a Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival:  Based on the true story of Johann Kastenberger, popularly known as Pumpgun-Ronnie, a marathon runner who in 1980s Austria came to fame for robbing banks and making his get-away on foot, Benjamin Heisenberg’s tense and highly cinematic film shows his protagonist as a man driven and at the same time stopped in his tracks by his need for constant motion. When he falls in love he has the chance to change direction.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
