A man comes to a small village to begin his new job as an attendant at the nearby castle. But everybody in the village claims that he surely must be mistaken, there is no need for an attendant at the castle. Written by
When did I see this film? As a new recruit in the IDF, January 1977. Before I even started basic training I was sent to an army Hebrew course to improve my Hebrew. One night the corporal informed us we would get to see a movie, "The Castle." As the movie unfolded in its incomprehensible complexity, most of the soldiers wanted to leave, but the corporal would not let us. So I had to see the entire movie, which has very little plot, and no sense at all.
Why didn't the young man simply leave when he found out how crazy the village was? Why does he insist on staying there? I would have run from this place as if the Hound of Hell was after me.
