Film Website



DOCUMENTARY Lars Eidinger is one of Germany’s most dazzling actors and has an international aura like almost no other. For the first time, the artist shares insights into the way he works. With his film debut in Maren Ade’s Everyone Else (2009) Lars Eidinger came to the attention of a wider public – a unique actor, full of intensity and a desire to improvise. He has been at home on the best-known theatre stages for years and regularly appears alongside international stars like Juliette Binoche, Isabelle Huppert und Adam Driver. Director Reiner Holzemer accompanies the 46-year old as he works on the role of Everyman for the Salzburg Festival in 2021, in rehearsal at the Berliner Schaubühne or while shooting the series Irma Vep for Olivier Assayas in Paris. An impressive portrait of an exceptional artist.
