About the movie: 

September 19: The Edukators/Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei. (2005), 2h 4m. German with English subtitles

Peter (Stipe Erceg) and Jan (Daniel Brühl) are "edukators," anarchists who break into wealthy people's
homes -- never stealing, but serving notice to fatcats that their days are numbered. Along comes Jule (Julia
Jentsch), a poor student and Peter's girlfriend, who convinces Jan to help her edukate a businessman
(Burghart Klaussner) she owes money to. When Jule mistakenly leaves evidence behind, they must go back to the crime scene, where they are surprised and events quickly get out of hand.
