Synopsis

Francis Jay is a man of the ’90s. Street-wise but eco-friendly, smart yet charmingly naive, when his journalism career falls on the rocks he sets out to salvage it by embarking on a quest to write about one of the greatest philosophers of the modern age for a TV documentary. The myth of Doctor Bazlo Criminale proves almost impossible to penetrate, but Jay doggedly pursues the doctor from congress to congress, from woman to woman and from muse to muse: just who is the mysterious Criminale?

Written after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Doctor Criminale shows a world where old ideologies are coming apart at the seams.
