Synopsis

 

He was one of the Top-Investmentbankers in Germany. He made a million profit per day. Now he is sitting in an empty bank building in the financial center of Frankfurt and talks. A frightening insight in a megalomaniac, quasi-religious parallel world behind mirrored windows.

 

 

"A vertiginous look inside the bubble behind the financial bubble, with no end in sight." 

New York Times Former investment banker Rainer Voss gets his closeup in Marc Bauder's riveting documentary."

Variety
"Marc Bauder's quietly disturbing film is near-perfect."
