Based on the novel Schloss Gripsholm by Kurt Tucholsky, Gripsholm plunges us into the pleasure-craving, decadent world of Berlin cabaret at the beginning of the 1930s. Kurt (Noethen) is a German-Jewish publisher, ironic author and, thanks to his risqué chanson lyrics, a celebrated star of the cabaret.

Kurt travels to the Swedish palace of Gripsholm with his girlfriend Lydia and their friends, the seductive vaudeville singer Billie and the passionate fly-boy Karlchen. Meanwhile Kurt’s claim that “all soldiers are murderers” has agitated the German Reich at home. Nothing will be the same again for the group.
