On the eve of WWII, a young con artist is determined to reclaim his lost noble heritage and ingeniously worms his way into the aristocracy becoming Count von Ludberg of the Kingdom of Moravia. He gains wealth, power, and the love of a mysteriously spiritual woman. But with great power comes great responsibility, and the count must risk all to save the kingdom from war. Will the nobility survive? Or is it the end of an era?
The Last Nobleman was nominated in 2001 for Nobel Prize in Literature.
