I have watched this movie once. This was on .


Based on the absurd but true 1973 bank heist and hostage crisis in Stockholm that was documented in the New Yorker as the origins of the 'Stockholm Syndrome'.

Based On An Absurd But True Story



Ethan Hawke plays an excentric bank robber in a movie based on a true story from the 1970s. He builds a rapport with Noomi Rapace's hostage character and befriends other captors with his loveable demeanour. The costumes and characters are larger-than-life and the movie is easy to watch. There are some funny moments and a decent amount of tension. It feels like a modern version of Dog Day Afternoon.
