An intimate portrait of the legendary actor and former Luchino Visconti “muse” Helmut Berger, who – after decades of movie stardom and jet set extravaganza – has settled for a more secluded and modest lifestyle in his hometown Salzburg, Austria.

A beautiful antithesis to the 'greatest hits' documentary. The more I think about this the closer it seems to an honest and respectful portrait of a true punk icon. In stark contrast to the decadence of Visconti films, Berger bares all and in the process delivers a tirade against how we feel aged nobility should act. A bit too much padding of the scenery as if it conspires against Berger. Screw haters.
