During the 16th century, horse dealer Michael Kohlhaas is taking his horses to market. But when he has to pass a local baron’s lands, the baron seized two of his horses even though tolling rights had been abolished in the country. When Kohlhaas discovers his loyal servant had been attacked by the baron’s guard dogs, and his horses came back injured and abused, he attempted to sue for monetary compensation, but his lawsuit was dismissed because the baron had a kinsman in the court. Later, Kohlhaas’ wife died from injuries suffered at the hands of the baron’s men.
Kohlhaas sent his daughter away and led a revolt to attack the Baron’s house, but the Baron escaped and hid in a monastery disguised as a nun.
The film won the Golden Iris at the Brussels Film Festival. In January 2014, the film received six nominations at the 39th César Awards, winning in two categories.
