Götz George, the quintessential “Cop” figure of the 1980s, slips into the role of a chilling, sophisticated criminal. From a hotel room he masterminds a bank robbery, which ends in a hostage taking. Die Katze is Dominik Graf’s breakthrough cinematic success and a milestone for the gangster film genre in Germany. (Potsdam Filmmuseum)
