Der Glanz des Tages

Feature Film, AT 2012, 92 min, OmeU

Actor Philipp Hochmair defines his freedom through his artistic development; his countless stage personas leave barely any room for day-to-day life. When the former circus performer Walter reveals that he is Philipp’s uncle, two kindred yet fundamentally different worlds collide. What is real and fictional in these portraits remains uncertain. Der Glanz des Tages is a story about the discrepancy between reality and make-believe, about friendship and life itself.
