In his epic film biography starring Helmut Käutner, Syberberg traces the life of the Saxon writer and his many efforts to gain recognition with his books despite hostility and court cases brought against him. The lavish work, staged with an illustrious ensemble of actors, also offers an analysis of historical and social contexts of the Wilhelmine era.
