When it came to making bad movies, Ed Wood was the best.

The mostly true story of the legendary "worst director of all time", who, with the help of his strange friends, filmed countless B-movies without ever becoming famous or successful.

Germany German (Deutsch)

Der exzentrische Filmemacher Edward D. Wood Jr. möchte als Hollywood - Regisseur Filmgeschichte schreiben. Es gibt da nur ein klitzekleines Problem: Er ist hoffnungslos untalentiert! Doch seine Leidenschaft für den Film ist grenzenlos und somit sieht Ed Wood über dieses kleine Detail großzügig hinweg. In primitiven Pappkulissen und mit einer mehr als skurrilen Schauspielergruppe dreht er unbeirrt Horror- und Science-Fiction-Billigproduktionen, die zu der Zeit bei den Kritikern und beim Publikum auf wenig Verständnis stoßen. Mit Stummfilmstar und Draculalegende Bela Lugosi möchte Ed Wood sein Meisterwerk verwirklichen, doch schier unüberwindbare Hindernisse stellen sich ihm in den Weg...

France French (Français)

Evocation de la vie d'Ed Wood, réalisateur considéré de son vivant comme le plus mauvais de tous les temps, aujourd'hui adulé et venéré par des milliers d'amateurs de bizarre et de fantastique à travers le monde.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Giunto dalla natia Pennsylvania, negli anni '50, a Los Angeles, il giovane Edward D. Wood Jr. è reduce dall'insuccesso teatrale del suo lavoro "The Casual Company". Determinante è l'incontro col suo idolo Bela Lugosi. Questi, personificazione del mito di Dracula, è disoccupato da 4 anni, vive del sussidio di disoccupazione, è da tempo alcolizzato e morfinomane, ma Ed riversa su di lui tutto l'affetto e l'ammirazione che ha in sé.
