Inhalt

In the Shadow of Power

"In the Shadow of Power" charts the last days of Willy Brandt’s chancellorship in 1974 after his personal assistant Guenter Guillaume was exposed as a spy for East Germany.

In the course of the investigations, Brandt′s private life unexpectedly becomes the topic of the inquiries. It remains unclear where the line between fact and fiction should be drawn.
The Guillaume affair is regarded as one of the biggest political scandals in the history of the Federal Republic and has not lost its fascination almost 30 years later. "In the Shadow of Power" is an absorbing scenario of Brandt’s last days in office and delivers a multi-layered and sensitive portrait of a politician who was a legend in his own lifetime.
For some, Willy Brand was an idol, honored and loved; for others, he was a traitor. Ziegler Film, in cooperation with ARTE and NDR and with the support of the Filmstiftung NRW, has also produced a documentary, "Willy Brandt - Eine Jahrhundertgestalt", by Peter Merseburger and Juergen Bruehns - on the subject of Brandt and his fight against two totalitarian systems: Fascism and Stalinism.
