Inspired by true events and beautifully crafted, an epic tale spanning 45 years (1900-1945) and following the fate of the Prussian von Krauss family. The film tells the story of a secret love between Kashubian boy Mateusz, taken in by German aristocrat Gerda von Krauss after his mother dies at birth and Marita, the daughter of Gerda, with whom Mateusz grew up with. Set against the backdrop of the tumultuous history of the Kashubian region and three nations inhabiting the former Polish-German borderland - the Kashubs, Poles, and Germans, The Butler is remarkable story not to be missed.

""The Butler" reminds us of a cinema that almost no longer exists in Poland. Visionary, visual and sensual. Filip Bajon created a great costume fresco, taking care of every fine detail, made with care and strong directorial leadership."
