Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writingblocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But theres still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the town than Karl Heinrich Marx. (3hr 40min)
