Novi film Gorana Markovića, jednog od najznačajnijih i najuspešnijih srpskih reditelja. Posle filma „Slepi putnik na brodu ludaka“ koji je prikazan na prošlogodišnjem festivalu Srpskog filma u Australiji, Marković je ekranizovao sopstveni pozorišni komad “Delirijum tremens” koji je godinama s puspehom bio na repertoaru Beogradskog dramskog pozorišta.

Priča prati poznatog glumca koji se u bolnici oporavlja uz pomoć psihodrame. Gluma je, ispostaviće se, opasna po život ali je i potencijalni lek.

„Posmatrati iz vizure glumca i razumeti glumca je nešto što je najvažnije u našem poslu. Sve počinje odatle, od glumačke reakcije, sve, drama, dramaturgija, razvoj priče, sve počinje od prve reakcije glavnog junaka, ili jednog od junaka“, smatra Marković.

Glavnog junaka u pozorišnoj predstavi maestralno je igrao Predrag Ejdus koji je bio predvidjen i za filmsku verziju. Na žalost, poznati glumac je preminuo pre početka snimanja pa je ovu zahtevnu ulogu preuzeo Tihomir Stanić. Ispostavilo se da je Stanić bio na visini izazova i složenog zadatka pa je na festivalima za tu ulogu već dobio nekoliko nagrada
