Jakob von Gunten, descendant of an aristocratic family, enrols at the Benjament Institute to become a servant. The owners of the school are Johannes Benjament and his sister Lisa. During the lessons, a group of superannuated students practice elegant bows and expressions, fold napkins, clean cutlery and carry buckets of water. Von Gunten, observing others with curiosity, learns the dark secrets of the facility. He soon perceives a sexual interest from Johannes, who lives in an incestuous relationship with his sister. However, beautiful Lisa and top student Kraus also seek to win his affection. Jakob's appearance accelerates the long-progressing process of decadence at the Institute... The script was based on the novel Jakob von Gunten (1908) by Robert Walser, an eminent Swiss writer, and the film gained a special award at the Locarno Festival.
