Helmut Berger, Actor
Andreas Horvath / 2015 / Austria / 90′

An infamous screen-star of the 1970s and the muse of modern Italian master Luchino Visconti, Helmut Berger allows filmmaker Andreas Horvath and his crew an intimate look at his daily life following his heyday of fame and frivolity. This punkish portrait of the enigmatic performer — once considered the enviable epitome of glamour and hedonism — reveals the personality that fuels the artist: loneliness and the human desire for recognition and closeness.

Berger is a totally unpredictable subject as someone with such an unusual experience of life: frequently wild and belligerent, yet often charismatic and endearing. Considered both the best and worst film of 2015 by John Waters, Helmut Berger, Actor is a fascinating journey into the mind of the 'star'.
