Indie Trailer Sunday: Andreas Lust Stars in German Film 'The Robber'
"Sprint, don't walk, to catch it!" My favorite quote from the trailer. Kino International has debuted the official US trailer on Apple for the German film The Robber, starring Austrian actor Andreas Lust as Johann Rettenberger, a real marathon athlete who robbed banks as a hobby by running from then back in the 90's. This actually looks surprisingly good, like it gets into the psyche and mentality behind this guy and what made him tick. The performances look incredible, the story looks intriguing, I think I'm going to need to see this. I'm sure most of you have never heard of this film, but please give it a shot, it looks really good!
