"Is he crazy or a genius? An impoverished compulsive hoarder or a millionaire? Many legends surround octogenarian Adolf Haeberli, who lives in a cramped and dilapidated house in the luxury spa town of St. Moritz. For some residents his home is an eyesore, while for others it’s a creative place of resistance. Haeberli himself thinks he was born under a lucky star. In this humorous but never exposing portrait of a lateral thinker, every voice is heard."

Annina Wettstein, DOK Leipzig

"A house falling apart, a lone wolf stuck in his paper jungle, far from normal, but right in the middle of it - in posh St. Moritz"

Moritz Müller-Preißer, Director
