Somewhat meandering and thematically unfocused, though very informative and entertaining doc on the infamous German emperor and his media presence.
Despite some inadequacies, such as silent footage that has been unnecessarily pimped with sound-effects, the old film material alone is worth the price of admission, and Schamoni's clever off-text, along with numerous enlightening interviews, draws a multifaceted picture of Wilhelm II.
His childhood and adolescence are too hastily presented, though.
7 out of 10 imperial dachshunds
