Werner Herzog / DE, 1974 / 110 min.
Werner Herzog has always been idiosyncratic so, for the role of the 17-year-old mute Kaspar Hauser – the ‘enfant sauvage,’ he chose 41-year-old Berlin busker Bruno S. Kaspar is acculturated, but wasn’t his original state more amenable?
Kaspar Hauser - Jeder für sich und Gott gegen alle is released in national cinemas by Eye.
