Burning Life © DEFA-Stiftung
In the desolate eastern states of a newly unified Germany, Anna and Lisa plan a series of bank robberies. They quickly become the most popular gangster duo of German postwar history, hunted by the police, but viewed as present-day female Robin Hoods by those in need. Amidst a stellar cast of actors, Maria Schrader (Aimée & Jaguar) and Anna Thalbach (Downfall) light up this German answer to the American road movie Thelma & Louise.
