Surprisingly good
1 March 2020 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This German film is an extra on the Robbery DVD.It actually compares very well with Robbery,notwithstanding that the print is damaged in sections and is dubbed into English.It doesn't of course have a superfluous car chase which helps.
