    Went to the video store and asked where this film was. The employee told me it was in the special "Kafka" section and motioned toward a doorway. The employee also noted that I could not go through at the present time. I suppose I will be allowed to enter sooner or later... 6 years 8 months ago

    The combination of Welles and Kafka works interstingly. An underrated film with fascinatingly surreal atmospheric power and genuine Kafkaseque material 7 years 8 months ago

    Brilliant camerawork, lighting and acting. A powerful film though I think changing the ending was a mistake and doesn't fit the tone of the story. 6 years 3 months ago
