| famous figure of anarchy
Kneissl is the Robin Hood or Butch Cassidy of Germany. Also Ringsgwandl made a song on him. Kneissl is a true anti-establishment figure a film can artfully reflect on. One of the main characters of German anarchy. The movie is also for those who like to see Bayrhammer, Schygulla, Mattes, Schlöndorff during their younger years. Kneissl was a robber who was executed after a brutal manhunt in rural bavaria. As a folk hero he was supported by the local farmers, which made it difficult for the 100+ policemen to get on him. There is a certain history of 18th century anarchy and weird characters in southern Germany, which are legends and always were admired by many young people.
