Berlin, 1944, the clown Charlie Rivel has to perform at the birthday of the Führer. There is a Gestapo agent who wants to perform with him, and also someone who has planned an attack that could change the course of the war and the history of humanity… An ironic, charming and poignant comedy. Charlie Rivel, the most tender of clowns, is obliged to perform for Hitler, the most barbaric of dictators. Is art innocent? Must it submit to power? Do artists practise politics?
