Who wants to party? Raise your hand! Even after twenty years, entertainer and musician Marc Pircher has lost nothing of his natural charm, for which his fans reward him with loyalty and record purchases. Schlagerstar depicts Pircher conquering the stage and capturing hearts, as well as posing for shoots and nurturing his PR campaign. The film at once portrays the stuff of dreams and the lucrative business, ambivalent but seduc- tive. An intelligent portrait with no shortage of catchy tunes.
