"La troisième partie de la trilogie d'István Szabó, où Brandauer offre une performance magnifique dans le rôle d'Erik Jan Hanussen. Un homme déchiré entre sa soif de pouvoir et ses valeurs morales, mais aussi entre la politique et le mysticisme. En 1918, Karl Schroeder, un soldat allemand, blessé au combat et guéri grâce aux pratiques d'hypnotisation du Dr. Bettelheim, devient lui-même hypnotiseur. Étonné par ce talent soudain, mais aussi par son don de prédiction, le Dr. Bettelheim l'expose au grand public. Karl fait alors sensation dans le Berlin d'après-guerre... jusqu'au jour où on le propulse dans l'arène politique, parce qu'il prédit qu'Hitler deviendra chancelier en 1933". (Source : site éditeur)
