Details

Greg Olliver (Lemmy) directs this documentary exploring the life of English writer Micky Burn.

The feature follows Micky as he retraces the extraordinary events of his adult life, from an affair with Soviet spy Guy Burgess to a gravitation towards Nazism and Adolf Hitler, who signed his copy of Mein Kampf' in 1936.

But after changing his opinion of fascism, he volunteered for the independent companies and fought against Germany in the Second World War, where he was captured as a prisoner of war during the St. Nazaire Raid and imprisoned in Colditz Castle.

He would latterly become a committed Marxist and be credited with saving the life of a young Audrey Hepburn.

Burn, who died in 2010, shines here as a candid and witty raconteur, full of vivid recollection.
