It's German Girl Power. A dramedy about friendship and determination, "Bandits," for which Warner Bros. recently picked up English-language remake rights, follows four female musicians on an unbelievable trek as they rocket to superstardom while on the lam. The premise is familiar: outlaws evading the authorities while their legend grows amongst the masses. But the film's human side draws its viewers closer.
"Bandits" has a lot of fun with its premise in which these women become pop icons while dodging police at every turn. Yet the film never shies away from the reality of their personal stories. These girls have sad tales to tell, and director/co-scripter Katja Von Garnier pulls the audience in to listen. Starring Katja Riemann and Jasmin Tabatabai. Directed by Katja Von Garnier. Written by Uwe Wilhelm and Katja Von Garnier. Produced by Harald Kugler, Elvira Senft and Molly von Furstenberg. A Stratosphere release. Comedy/drama. German-language; subtitled. Rated R for language, sexuality and some drug use. Running time: 104 min
