Brief synopsis

Michael Kohlhaas is a prosperous horse dealer living in France during the XVIth century. He is devout, honest and lives a happy family life. One day, while crossing through the property of a petty Lord, he is stopped by a guard who asks for a tax. Kohlhaas pleads for justice but the case is quickly covered up. He revolts and decides to take the law into his own hands. (Quelle: http://www.lesfilmsdici.fr/en/catalog/937-michael-kohlhaas.html)
