This is a 1997 Germany/Austria production written and directed by the visionary filmmaker Michael Haneke whose movies ("The Lives of Others", "The Piano Teacher" and "The White Ribbon") are well known in the US.

The movie is in German with English subtitles.

A land surveyor is summoned to a remote village by the local government, known as "The Castle". As the absurdity to his circumstances and the depth and intricacy of the Castle's hold on the villagers grow, Haneke masterfully evokes Kafka's vision of a dystopian society hobbled by paperwork and bled dry by conformism and convolution. Using an expert cast and beautifully austere Rembrand-like visuals, Haneke transforms Kafka's unfinished novel into a potent, enigmatic and complete film experience that is truly Kafkaesque.

A short discussion following the film will set the stage for conversations to be continued in our future "Coffee with Kafka" meetings.
