The Castle DVD
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 Muhe (The Lives Of Others, Amen, Funny Games). 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 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' oeuvres, making it a lesser-known yet crucial part of his glittering career.
