Anton, the Magician ★★ Anton der Zauberer 1978

Anton likes to live by his wits. A car mechanic, he marries the boss' daughter, Liesel, and uses his skills to make a pile of illegal dough that he hides at the home of the widowed Sabine, with whom he's also involved. When Anton's schemes catch up with him, he ends up in prison, and Sabine takes off to Switzerland with the cash. But this isn't the end of their story. German with subtitles. 101m/C VHS .
