Lisa Maria Potthoff,
New master print of Fritz Lang's 1960 film. Dr. Mabuse is a criminal mastermind, who uses people he's hypnotised and bugging equipment from the Nazi-era to steal nuclear technology a visiting American industrialistt carries.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, one man stirred Bavarian emotions: the legendary Robber Kneißl. While the authorities make the capture of the alleged felon their top priority, the common people love their "Hias" (Kneißl): He is one of them and he defies every injustice done to him, right down to the end. For when a man like him has no chance to live upright in his own country, he'll do anything to begin anew, with his one and only - in America. It's a race against time, and the stakes are nothing less than life and death.Written by

I watched the movie with my girl friend, who lives at Dachau and comes from a small village near Kneißl's birthplace. We had watched more of Rosenmüller's movies, and more likely than not we recognized some places in her neighbourhood.
But not this time. In the end we found out that the larger part of the movie had been filmed in the Czech republic. (Rosenmüller needed an old farm that was in a bad shape!) So it was a good movie with some fake local colour, but the actors were genuine Bavarians with a genuine dialect!
Kneißl himself certainly was no Bavarian version of Robin Hood, but a petty criminal who was framed by a local policeman when he was released after his first prison sentence. But even then he was guilty of murder or at least manslaughter, not to mention his robberies.
