MUBI's take

Co-written with the legendary Pascal Bonitzer, Raoul Peck’s engaging period piece chronicles the starting point of a friendship that changed the course of history. A light-hearted biopic celebrating the vibrant intellectual milieu of the early-19th-century and the legacy of Marx and Engels.
