Synopsis:

 Michael Haneke’s film of Franz Kafka’s The Castle pairs one of the most influential voices in 20th century literature with one of the most visionary filmmakers of the new millennium. A film as complex, vivid, and “intriguing” (New York Times) as Orson Welles’ The Trial, The Castle is both an ingenious, perversely faithful interpretation of the master of alienation’s novel, and a worthy companion to The Piano Teacher, Caché and other films from the darkest leading light of contemporary cinema.

A land surveyor identified simply as K is summoned to a remote mountain village by the local government, known as (and housed in) “the castle.” Unable to convince underlings of the legitimacy of his position, he tries to take his case to castle officials. But the more K struggles to gain entrance, the more obstructive the village’s provincial bureaucracy becomes. As the absurdity of K’s circumstances and the depth and intricacy of the castle’s hold on the villagers grows, Haneke masterfully evokes Kafka’s vision of a dystopian society hobbled by paperwork and bled dry by conformism and convolution. Using an expert cast headed by Haneke regulars Ulrich Mühe (The Lives of Others, Funny Games_) and Susanne Lothar (_The Piano Teacher), and beautifully austere, Rembrandt-like visuals, Haneke transforms Kafka’s unfinished novel into a potent, enigmatic, and complete film experience that is truly Kafkaesque. —Kino

 

From Michael Haneke, winner of the Palme d’Or 2009 and 2012, comes this icy, beguiling, masterful adaptation of Kafka''s seminal novel, starring the late, great Ulrich Mühe (The Lives of Others, Amen, Funny Games).
A land surveyor is summoned to a remote village by the local government, hosed in ‘the castle’.
But when he arrives, he is unable to persuade the locals of his legitimacy and finds himself sucked into a bizarre spiral of provincial bureaucracy and petty social rivalries that soon becomes a surreal, all-encompassing nightmare.
Throwing open a deep thematic vein in Haneke''s work, this stunning parable of alienation and absurdity highlights important parallels between the two artists'' oevres, making it a lesser-known, yet crucial part of his glittering carreer.
It was originally broadcast on Austrian television in 1997.
