Werner Herzog's first popular success (1974), and not surprisingly his most accessible film, less ironic and more "humane" (if that's the word) than his other work. A strangely sentimental story of a man who has been raised to adulthood without ever leaving the confines of a small cell, it's a sort of King of Hearts in reverse, with the man-child's efforts to socialize himself played as elementary social satire. And it works quite well, in a limited way, thanks largely to Herzog's audacity in casting a schizophrenic, identified only as "Bruno S.," in the central role. Also known as The Mystery of Kaspar Hauser. In German with subtitles.
