Ungarn BR Deutschland 1980/1981 Spielfilm

Summary

An ambitious and talented actor on the verge of success marries the daughter of a respected professor in pre-World War II Germany. As the Nazi influence grows, he must decide whether to follow his wife and her family as they flee in exile or to use his popularity to further his own career. He returns to Berlin and uses his new connections to become the head of the National Theater, while tailoring his art to the fascist beliefs of his patrons. But he soon realizes that there is a price for his success.
