A sensitive portrait of an exceptional character closely connected to Hamburg. Ulrich Tukur is a true all-rounder. He sings, plays piano and accordeon, writes and embodies baddies very persuasively. The 61-year old actor loves change, movement and restlessness. The film accompanies Tukur through Germany, France, Italy and Greece and takes a look at the person behind the showman. It comprehensively documents his origins, the stepping-stones of his career and his reflections on theatre.
EVA GERBERDING has made numerous documentaries, such as The Romanovs (2013) and F.C. Gundlach – the Master of Fashion Photography (2017) and most recently the cinema documentary Auch Leben is eine Kunst – Der Fall Max Emden [Life is Also an Art Form – the Case of Max Emden] (2018).
