The Robber

Venue: Seattle International Film Festival, 2010
Genre: Drama

Are passions for bank robbery and marathon running really all that different? One of those pastimes is potentially more destructive than the other. Opportunities for a different path in life repeatedly present themselves, but the main character doesn’t seem to be able to change. On one level, this is a story about addiction to an endorphin rush. The screenplay is adapted from a novel by Martin Prinz, and based on actual crimes committed in Austria.
