The Princess and the Warrior Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Director [[Performer~P222772~Tom Tykwer~tomtykwer]] followed up his international hit [[Feature~V173489~Lola Rennt~runlolarun]] ([[Feature~V173489~Run Lola Run~runlolarun]]) with this drama, which also examines young people living on the edges of the law. Sisi ([[Performer~P263424~Franka Potente~frankapotente]]) is an attractive but withdrawn woman who works in a psychiatric clinic, while Bodo ([[Performer~P237396~Benno Fürmann~bennofürmann]]) is looking to make some quick money after his recent release from the army. Bodo robs a gas station and is fleeing on foot when he accidentally causes Sisi to be hit by a truck. Realizing she's seriously injured, Bodo comes to Sisi's rescue and performs an emergency tracheotomy on her before he escapes again. Sisi, who is often pursued by men but shies away from their advances, finds that she longs to meet the mysterious Bodo again, and eventually tracks him down to a hideout he shares with his brother, Walter ([[Performer~P143332~Joachim Krol~joachimkrol]]). Bodo and Walter angrily send Sisi away, but she unexpectedly encounters them when they pull a robbery at a bank where she's running an errand. Bodo and Walter are caught in a shoot-out with police, and Sisi helps to spirit Bodo away to the clinic where she works, trying to spare him the grim news that Walter was killed in the melee. In addition to serving as writer and director, [[Performer~P222772~Tom Tykwer~tomtykwer]] also composed the musical score for The Princess and the Warrior in collaboration with [[Performer~P231463~Johnny Klimek~johnnyklimek]] and [[Performer~P231382~Reinhold Heil~reinholdheil]]. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
