Thrilling documentary about a disputable politician
26 November 2002 | by 6325See all my reviews

This movie documentary describes the lifestory of Herbert Wehner, who became one of the most influential polititians of the social democratic party in Western Germany after WW 2.

The movie depicts his political interest and career starting as an anarchist after WW 1, then joining the communist party, going underground during the nazi dictatorship and then shortly after that emigrating to stalinist Russia.

There, in the infamous Hotel Lux, he faces new pressures from the daily denouncing that goes on between the numerous 'guests' of that hotel.

The development of Wehner's character, his ambitious strive to save his skin and build his career and thereby sacrificing his former ideals is well described in this movie.
