Young screenwriter Joe Gillis tries to establish himself in Hollywood, though he remains undesired. By chance, he finds his way in to a villa on Sunset blvd. The owner of the mansion turns out to be the former silent-movie star Norma Desmond. The ageing actress repudiates the fact that she has been forgotten and people are no longer interested in her talent. She lives in her own little bubble, deluding herself that she is still an iconic figure for millions of people. Her house-steward Max protects her fantasy world, regularly sending her letters from imaginary fans...
“Sunset blvd.” is a masterpiece by Billy Wilder. It is one of the most important films of the 20th century and probably the most important American film showing the seamy side of the dream factory, the underbelly of the American dream and dolce vita. The film was nominated for 11 Academy Awards and won 3 of them.
