Story

What could be a better way of depicting a biography of a cabaret and movie star than a musical drama? Glitter, scandals, roaring twenties’ music and amazing acting: the film contains all that and much more. It depicts the life of the Polish star of the interwar period called Eugeniusz Bodo, who was a man of many talents, and presents his pathway to success. His career was international, just like his origin—his father was Swiss while his mother was Polish. In the interwar period, Bodo was a major star of Europe since he was an actor, a director, a producer, a businessman and the central figure of numerous gossips and scandals.
