Bonnie und Clyde( Visual )

16 editions published between 1967 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Handlung entspricht in den Grundzügen tatsächlichen Ereignissen: zur Zeit der grossen Wirtschaftskrise brennt die erlebnishungrige Bonnie Parker mit dem vorbestraften Clyde Barrow durch; gemeinsam stehlen sie Autos, rauben Banken aus und morden. Sie sind stolz auf ihre Heldentaten und schicken Fotos und Texte an die Zeitungen; und sie sind populär, weil sie die kleinen Leute schonen. Erweitert zur 5-köpfigen 'Barrow-Gang' gelingt es ihnen immer wieder, der Polizei zu entkommen. Schliesslich werden sie denunziert und unbewaffnet von Polizisten erschossen (gemäss Berichten sollen es rund 1000 Schüsse gewesen sein). - Ein ungewöhnlicher Gangsterfilm, weil er in der weiten Landschaft der Südstaaten und nicht in der Grossstadt spielt; und weil Bonnie und Clyde als Romantiker erscheinen, die in diesen Jahren der Verzweiflung den ur-amerikanischen Traum vom freien Leben träumen. (Reclams Filmführer / TR7*****, 20.12.03)
