Der Räuber is a 2010 Austrian-German film directed by Benjamin Heisenberg.
Remake: The Robber (in production, projected 2013 release)
A champion marathoner leads a double life as a serial bank robber, sprinting between fixes (and away from police cavalcades) as many as three times a day. Based on the real-life story of Austria's most-wanted bank robber of the 1980s, Benjamin Heisenberg's thriller is a lean, visceral study of pathological compulsion, featuring a riveting central performance.
