Based on the Kurt Tucholsky's novel Schloss Gripsholm and on his real life story, this beautifully produced feature film plunges the audience into the pleasure-craving, decadent world of Berlin cabaret at the beginning of the 1930s. Kurt Tucholsky, who was an important Jewish German intellectual, give us Kurt, a German-Jewish publisher, ironic author and, thanks to his risqué chanson lyrics, a celebrated star of the cabaret. After writing inflammatory articles about the Nazis, in the summer of 1932, Kurt travels to the Swedish palace of Gripsholm with his girlfriend Lydia and their friends, the seductive vaudeville singer Billie and the passionate fly-boy Karlchen. Nothing will ever be the same again.
