The Radetzskymarsch is a piece of immortality and infinity. (Michael Kaufmann)
The son of the major Baron Trotta is being prepared to join the military, at the time of the end of the Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy, after the family hero; the grandfather who was the Hero from Solferino. The tradition of the family forces the young man to join the military, but inside he is truly not a soldier.
Radetzkymarsch is based on a novel by Joseph Roth, an elegy of the fall of the K and K monarchy. It describes a world in which sons have to follow the paths of their fathers based on ancient decisions of ancestors. The film is a major contribution to Austrian cinema history. It was played in cinemas in the USSR, Western Europe, Canada, and Chile. (3sat)
