Le jeune Karl Marx
Raoul Peck’s well-crafted period drama focuses on the early years of Karl Marx.
Dir Raoul Peck
With August Diehl, Stefan Konarske, Vicky Krieps
Following his acclaimed documentary I Am Not Your Negro, Raoul Peck’s timely, well-crafted period drama focuses on the early years of Karl Marx, in exile with his young wife when they meet Friedrich Engels, the son of a factory owner. In Germany the intellectuals are in upheaval, in France the workers have taken to the streets and in England the revolution is industrial – inspiring philosophers Marx and Engels to produce ‘The Communist Manifesto.’
