Robber, The (15)

Biography, Crime, Drama

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

The critical consensus

End result? A thriller that deliberately doesn’t thrill.

***(*)(*)Simon Kinnear, Total Film, 17/03/2014

For those who prefer a bit of existential vagueness to being led by the nose, this is a thought-provoking as well as a technically impressive piece of work.

****(*)Hannah McGill, The List, 18/03/2014

The Robber will leave you sweating, breathless yet naturally fulfilled; the one important factor that’s so frequently dismissed.

Douglas Greenwood, The Edinburgh Reporter, 20/03/2014

Less interested in exploiting thrills than it is in exploring the existential loneliness of the long distance runner.
