LE JEUNE KARL MARX

At the age of 26, Karl Marx embarks with his wife Jenny on the road to exile. In 1844 Paris they meet young Friedrich Engels, son of a factory owner, who’s studied the sordid beginnings of the English proletariat. Engels, the dandy, brings Karl Marx the missing piece to the puzzle that composes his new vision of the world. Together, between censorship and police raids, riots and political upheavals, they will lead the labor movement during its development into a modern era.

August Diehl, Stefan Konarske, Vicky Krieps
