A stormy reunion between scriptwriter Lumir with her famous mother and actress, Fabienne, against the backdrop of Fabienne's autobiographic book and her latest role in a Sci-Fi picture as a mother who never grows old.
Spiked with actual footage from Fritz Langs "M". For a German movie this is pretty neatly done and you have quite a few crazy ideas thrown in there. I haven't read anything about Langs personal life but the movie tries to rebuild things that may have happened around the time he did "M". I don't know how close to the truth (actual events) this stays, but you could imagine things happening like they are depicted.
Of course "reality" and fiction do collide or at merge together and the movie is also shot in black and white. A mixture of making of and biopic this is not afraid to show nudity, sexual situations (and violence) and craziness overall. Tough to kind of like anyone, but that is not what the movie is aiming for
