Bandits | Chicago Reader


The main characters in this 1997 movie—a string of uncomfortably campy earnest scenes following four escaped felons in southern Germany who become a successful pop band even as they evade recapture—are all women, but this seems irrelevant, since every opportunity to subvert gender stereotypes has been avoided for the sake of the usual exploitation. Yet the final image, a minimalist evocation—perhaps a compromise for an unmarketable ending—puts an intriguing spin on everything that's come before it. Uwe Wilhelm and director Katja von Garnier wrote the screenplay; with Katja Riemann, Jasmin Tabatabai, Nicolette Krebitz, and Jutta Hoffmann.
