SynopsisIn the next few days, Franz Xaver Kroetz will turn 65. He has still got enough spit and fire to go against the prevailing current. For decades he has worked as an author, dramatist and poet; as an actor he occasionally got into character for the unforgettable Baby Schimmerlos in Helmut Dietls TV series
‘Kir Royal’. Franz Xaver Kroetz polarizes. Not only does he work like a Berserker; he does not cease to unveil the abysses of the human condition or the defects of society in his theater pieces. “I’ve written 60 plays, a whole world thrives within me.” Irene Hoefer and Hanns-Bruno Kammertoens visit Franz Xaver Kroetz in his house on Tenerife Island, where they talk to him about the important moments in his life, about his provocative theater, about the torturous moments of writing, his failed marriage to actress Marie Theres Kroetz-Relin.
With rare openness, Franz Xaver Kroetz gives the account of his public and private life. He had hoped
to influence the world more profoundly with his poetic work.
