Karl and Marylin

 
Burdened by the weight of history and his ambivalent fame, Karl Marx decides to dive into ordinary life. From that point on, he wanders through the plot as a historical nobody and runs into none other than the starlet Marilyn Monroe, who dreams of the glamorous hustle and bustle of stardom. Karl helps Marilyn make a breakthrough in her career, but the enthusiasm does not last long. Priit Pärn‘s most recent film deals once again with the confrontation between really existing capitalism and an ideal social utopia that reality broke down.
