Brief synopsis

It is 31 December 1999 - New Year's Eve of the new millennium. At the Palace Hotel, a sumptuous castle in the Swiss Alps, rich, spoilt guests converge, greeted by a host of waiters, porters, cooks and receptionists. The stories of the individual characters give life to an absurd, black, provocative comedy. (Source: Translated from the Italian official synopsis via Deepl)
