Synopsis

The moving docudrama depicts the rise and fall of one-of-a-kind car designer Carl Borgward: a tale of epic dreams and epic tragedy during Germany’s post-war Miracle on the Rhine. Conspiracy theories still persist around this first massive post-war insolvency.


Additional Information

The suspicious and unresolved circumstances surrounding Borgward’s bankruptcy turned the Borgward brand into an economic legend. Marcus O. Rosenmüller powerfully weaves excellent acting craft together with original quotes as well as sound and film recordings from visionary, self-made entrepreneur Carl Borgward’s intimate circle. Master character actor Thomas Thieme („The Lives of the others“) conveys Borgward’s cantankerous charm to a tee. His dubious adversary is glibly played by Bruno Eyron.
