Thomas Brasch lived many lives: he was a writer and a worker; a rebel, protesting the oppression in the East Germany; a controversial figure in West Germany; and an internationally renowned filmmaker. And that was “just“ his real life – in his head there were so many more lives ... With an impressive ensemble, including a tour de force by Albrecht Schuch, and mesmerizing black-and-white cinematography, director Kleinert crafts an inventive, breathless portrait of a complex character.
