Cowardly but ambitious Diedrich Hessling has learned his lesson--in order to gain power, you must bow to those who have it and ignore those who don't. Diedrich thinks he's finally achieved his goal when he's chosen to give the keynote speech at the dedication of an Emperor's monument. Based on the novel by Heinrich Mann. German with subitles.
