About the Film
A land surveyor is summoned to a remote village by the local government, housed 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 become a surreal, all-encompassing nightmare.
Keep it up iTunes!
Well, I'm just glad I bumped into this when I saw the films I could preorder. It's good to see iTunes adding more and more foreign movies into its already vast catalogue. Nice work!
The film is beautiful, immensely touching. Excellent performance by a superb actor like Mühe, and the storyline turns out to be really deep and interesting.
Wonderful proof that you can make a film keeping the eerie atmosphere of Franz Kafka’s works.
