HISTORICAL MINI SERIES
Staying in the international waters, today I'm presenting you with a period set mini series from Germany HOTEL EUROPA (Das Weiße Haus am Rhein or The White House on the Rhine) which will air sometime later this year on German ARD produced by our fave Beta Film, directed by
Thorsten M. Schmidt and starring Jonathan Berlin, Benjamin Sadler and Katharina Schüttler.
Set between WWI and WWII, the predictably sumptuous series portrays down the years the dreams, foibles and destinies of members of the Dreesen hotelier dynasty, owners of the Rheinhotel Dreesen, built on the very banks of the Rhine, and a popular place of stay for celebrities
from many walks of life. It is the unbelievable and dramatic story of an entire continent, portrayed through the personal fates of the Dreesen family. In this unique hotel, where Charlie Chaplin and Adolf Hitler were sleeping wall to wall, you can experience the incredible history of Europe with all its ups and downs.
|The story of the two part series is based on true events
|International politicians and rulers, artists, philosophers and world stars were almost magically attracted and accommodated by the hotel.
