  1. EdieEmm's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

    Herzog, on his historical 'Enigma' (or the way better, less American, title 'Every Man for Himself and God Against All'): “It is not the accountant's truth of cinema vérité; it is an ecstatic truth...” Which, when you write a film based on an extraordinary story, then just happen to find, by chance, an unknown with an improbably similar story to play the lead, seems a reasonable claim. Existential & ambitious. 4.25

  2. Saaam's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

    Bruno S. was the "unknown soldier of German cinema" for sure.

  3. Chiara_WinterGarten's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

  4. Korial's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

    In its simplicity is embarrassingly pristine and poignant.

  5. film_frame's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

    The first film that I saw that I remember being totally weirded out, but then totally fell in love with. Herzog could not go wrong in the 70's.

  10. Eriugena82's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

    It seems likely the actual Kaspar Hauser was simply a pathological liar, but Herzog is more interested in the idea of someone like Hauser rather than a literal biography of his life. Someone who is strange and innocent, raised completely separate from the rest of the world, and then suddenly confronted with modern society. An excellent film, with a suitably strange performance from Bruno Schleinstein.

  11. Hélène Musc's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

  12. Pierre.F's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

    Une enigme non résolue mais une narration qui ne cesse de la rendre problématique. C'est un film qui restitue toute l'ambiguïté des "enfants sauvages". L'éducation ici n'est qu'une "chute" remettant en cause toutes nos idées reçus comme celles des séminaristes demandant à Kaspar Hauser s'il dispose d'une "idée innée de Dieu"...

    all humans are intellectuals

  16. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

    Deceptively gentle upon first appearance, but it seems angrier each time I view it. A howl against man's civilising impulses, transfigured into a lyrical ballad. Most remarkable is the fact that Herzog can play Pachebel's over a shot of a field of rye blowing the wind and it not feel trite or kitsch, but simultaneously terrifyingly blank/other and as ecstatically beautiful as a mirage.

    "Why is everything so hard for me? It seems to me that my coming into this world was a very hard fall."

    Film really explains how much we learn during our lifetime and how much influenced we are.

  23. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

  24. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

    The predecessor to David Lynch's Elephant Man. I watched a 35mm print of this at NSW Art Gallery and my back started to ache from sitting for so long but it was worth it, the ending is is disheartening yet fitting as a comment about modern society,
