Banklady

Banklady

Deutschland 2012/2013, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Gisela Werler is 30, single, works in a wallpaper factory, and lives with her parents in modest circumstances. A humdrum middle-class life, no different than that of countless other young women in West Germany in the 1960s. But she has a dream: Capri. And it finally seems within reach when she meets the charming Hermann, cab driver and bank robber. She falls for him, quick and hard. Begs him to take her with him on his bank heists – and proves to be a gifted, if not quite cold-blooded, robber of her own. It’s the beginning of a notorious new duo, the Bonnie and Clyde of suburban Hamburg. And the start of Gisela Werler's secret life as the "Banklady".
