The Cat (Die Katze)
Götz George, Gudrun Landgrebe, Joachim Kemmer, Heinz Hoenig, Ralf Richter, Ulrich Gebauer, Sabine Kaack / Fiction / German
The most riveting thriller in the history of German cinema, this diabolically smart, sexy and witty bank-heist picture recounts a robbery purposefully escalated into a full-blown hostage crisis to collect a handsome ransom. Overseeing the proceedings from a futuristic high-rise hotel across the street, a criminal mastermind (national superstar Götz George) engages in a suspenseful cat-and-mouse game with the police.
