1997. Germany/Austria. Directed by Michael Haneke. With his penchant for open-ended narratives that are subject to infinite interpretations, Haneke fittingly chose to adapt Franz Kafka's unfinished masterpiece, The Castle, which abandons the reader, midsentence, in uncertainty and expectation. Ulrich Mü:he (The Lives of Others) stars as K, a land surveyor whose attempts to reach the Castle are endlessly thwarted by petty bureaucratic machinations, suspicious and prying townsfolk, a labyrinthine topography, and a relationship with a woman (...or are they merely using each other?) Courtesy Kino International and Wega Film. In German; English subtitles. 123 min.
