It is too bad that this effort produces so little of worth. Like most educated persons I have a working knowledge of Kafka and his work in literature and business. I hoped to have this knowledge fleshed out in some new dimension and instead found little to take with me. The actress playing his last love, Renata Stachowicz, was enjoyable to witness. Long ramblings about his inner distress were in no way news or in any way fulfilling to absorb. The many still images of old Prague were repetitious. The moderate presentation of the local jewry were somewhat interesting but played little role in Kafka's actual existence. The speaking "ghosts" in many scenes were distracting. I would like to have had all dialogue in the correct language with English subtitles for all. The mixture presented was confusing and distracting. I did feel that Max Brod played a significant role in Kafka's life and was good to learn about. The older actress playing Kafka's second (depicted) lover was distasteful enough to make one glad Kafka escaped her lightly. His family were important to him beyond his appreciation to them and were not shown in any helpful way.

I am sorry I wasted the time waiting for something better to happen.
