The Enigma Of Kasper Hauser
Werner Herzog's affecting biopic
Everyone loves a headscratcher of a tale, and the story of abandoned Kasper Hauser is just that. Clutching a series of letters, he appeared on the streets of Nuremburg in 1828 after living alone in a cell for the whole of his life. Sticking closely to the facts, the film’s accuracy leans heavily on the communication Kasper made throughout his life. This beauty won the Grand Prize of the Jury at the Cannes in 1975, so if you like your cinema dark and thoughtful then this is a must-see. Tickets are for best available seating. This film is subtitled.
"A lyrical film about the least lyrical of men."
