Karl is finally getting out of jail, but none of his family are there to meet him. Feeling betrayed after sacrificing himself to protect their finances, he joins the gang of an old man planning a robbery.
Based on a play by Friedrich von Schiller, this modern tale of vengeance and crookery is a cold-blooded affair between the four peculiar members of a disjointed family. Set in the privileged high-finance world of Luxembourg, Les brigands is a crisp neo-noir fuelled with sibling tension and rivalry.
