Silent Extras

Ewald Stanislas Krieg and his two friends Elivira Lopez and Broccoli have a desire to make it big in the movie business. Ewald was rejected by an acting school where he met Broccoli who is the self proclaimed Chairman for the Association for Geniuses, having been pronounced a wunderkind at the age of six while playing the violin in the family living room. Broccoli leads Ewald and Elvira around Amsterdam, very certain of what will work to get them worldwide recognition entitled Operation Marlon Brando.
