Life as a stage. For Helmut Berger, acting is not a profession, but a calling: “I’m an actor.” Andreas Horvath’s intimate and disturbing portrait of the former “most beautiful man in the world” develops over the course of the film to a relentless, personal, and entertaining War of Roses between the actor and filmmaker, to a schizophrenic battle for power and recognition on the stage presented by the film itself.
