Who was Arndt von Bohlen? A weird jetsetter in postwar German high society? A strange “bird of paradise” whose main interests were extravagant clothes and flashy make-up? Or simply Germany’s wealthiest early retiree? This fictional documentary film, directed by André Schäfer, tells the story of the last of the Krupp von Bohlen line, the German steelworks dynasty that made two world wars possible.
The movie presents a different image of Arndt von Bohlen than the gossip columns of the 60’s and 70’s did. With Arnd Klawitter, a very sensitive and creative actor, in the main role, Herr von Bohlen tells the story of an intelligent and melancholy person who was a kind of lightning rod for some of the psychological aftereffects of “black pedagogy” and Nazi ideology that plagued Germany after the war. In a fictitious interview Arndt von Bohlen tells us that he had to apply in writing for an appointment if he wanted to talk to his grandfather, Gustav Krupp von Bohlen.
