Malmkrog

Malmkrog

Transylvania, end of the 19th century. Wealthy landowner Nikolai invites a group of distinguished guests in his luxurious manor, among which a decorated general, a politician, and several members of the aristocracy. In an idle ambiance, the banqueters engage in heated philosophical and political debates, gradually revealing their different moral and cultural standpoints. A chamber drama of exquisite dialogue orchestration and tableau vivant aesthetics that recreates an entire era, echoing the intrinsic arrogance of the ruling class.
