The Great Fortune Kirsten Burger, Mikko Gaestel, Johannes Müller

Film index A to Z

Das Grosse Glück

Ultra-wealthy, roguish, cultivated, affected, annoying, trisomic: meet Mirco Kuball. The heir to a large fortune, he spends his days in the lap of luxury, feasting on an endless parade of fine foods, enjoying massages, wearing bespoke clothes, succumbing to his every whim. To break out of his indolent life, he also has artistic ambitions, which he fulfills by working as a theatre extra. The Great Fortune is a funny yet serious look at an eccentric and capricious man who is the pompous star of his own life. His bizarre and pedantic pronouncements for the camera gradually give way to more intimate thoughts, revealing a complex and fragile man who uses wealth to make up for what nature has not given him.
