  • Went to the movies Wept Matchless entertainment So wrote Franz Kafka in one of his diaries, giving us but one hint of his little known passion for the cinema Until now, Kafka aficionados have been left to speculate about which films moved Kafka so powerfully and how those films might have influenced his writing With Kafka Goes to the Movies, German actor and film di Went to the movies Wept Matchless entertainment So wrote Franz Kafka in one of his diaries, giving us but one hint of his little known passion for the cinema Until now, Kafka aficionados have been left to speculate about which films moved Kafka so powerfully and how those films might have influenced his writing With Kafka Goes to the Movies, German actor and film director Hanns Zischler draws on years of detective work to provide the first account of Kafka s moviegoing life.Since many of Kafka s visits to the cinema occurred during bachelor trips with Max Brod, Zischler s research took him not only to Kafka s native Prague but to film archives in Munich, Milan, and Paris Matching Kafka s cinematic references to reviews and stills from daily papers, Zischler hunted down rare films in collections all across Europe A labor of love, then, by a true man of the cinema, Kafka Goes to the Movies brims with discoveries about the pioneering years of European film With a wealth of illustrations, including reproductions of movie posters and other rare materials, Zischler opens a fascinating window onto movies that have been long forgotten or assumed lost.But the real highlights of the book are those about Kafka himself Long considered one of the most enigmatic figures in literature, the Kafka that emerges in this work is strikingly human Kafka Goes to the Movies offers an absorbing look at a witty, passionate, and indulgently curious writer, one who discovered and used the cinema as a place of enjoyment and escape, as a medium for the ambivalent encounter with modern life, and as a filter for the changing world around him.

    1. „Im Kino gewesen. Geweint. Maßlose Unterhaltung.“Hanns Zischler bietet mit diesem Buch eine spannende, außergewöhnliche Perspektive auf Kafkas Leben und Werk - es war sehr interessant zu lesen, welchen Einfluss das Kino auf Kafka hatte und welche Filme sein Schreiben beeinflusst haben. Das Buch ist sehr informationsreich, aber leider ein bisschen unstrukturiert. Jedes Kapitel beginnt mit einer zeitlichen Einordnung und damit, was gerade in Kafkas Leben passiert ist und welche Filme er ges [...]



    2. Literatur und Kino müssen sich nicht ausschliessen. Man kann beides geniessen, wie kein Geringerer als der grosse Franz Kafka beweist. Dies ist die erweiterte und überarbeitete Version des gleichnamigen Klassikers von 1996. Vor dieser Zeit war den Literaten kaum bewusst, wie stark das Kino Kafka geprägt hat - dafür brauchte es Hanns Zischler, selbst u.a. Schauspieler, Regisseur und Essayist. Nein, Literatur und Kino müssen sich definitiv nicht ausschliessen!Die Neuausgabe kommt als biblioph [...]


    3. I am reading this book in the context of W. G. Sebald's Vertigo. What a jewel this little book is. Sebald wrote an appreciative essay which is included in his posthumous collection Campo Santo. The apparently narrow focus on Kafka and the movies (not just "cinema") turns out to be a surprisingly revealing perspective on Kafka. The book's images are rich, varied, and appealing, and especially in the context of Vertigo's third section, "Dr. K takes the waters at Riva." I can only echo Sebald in my [...]


    4. A beautiful book and one I am positive the author did out of love for his subject. Other than that, I do not see any lasting merit for having read it.
