Gripsholm trailer hd 2000
Gripsholm is a 2000 Swiss film directed by Xavier Koller based on the Kurt Tucholsky's novel Schloss Gripsholm and reflection into final part of his real life.
From Xavier's own words, "The subject of the story is partly the autobiographical story of the aggressive publisher Kurt (Tucholsky), who in the year 1932 travels to Sweden together with his girl friend Lydia, whom he calls "Princess". Variety singer Billie and air-pilot Karlchen follow later on to join-up with the couple. There now begins a sensuous life and games of love in the last summer before the national socialists take over power in Germany. Kurt loves his friends who have abandoned him, as well as his girl-friend who loves him but nevertheless returns home. One tries to forget the troubles and hopes, in the face of the threatening catastrophe, to retain a certain innocence."
It was Switzerland's submission to the 73rd Academy Awards for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, but was not accepted as a nominee.
