I liked this movie so much! Here, in St.Petersburg, Russia, it was shown on wide screen in cinema on main street of the city and there was 10 people in big hall, but no one left and in the end we all were applauding.
For me base of the structure of this movie is witty bound between XIX century strange story of a young man Kaspar Hauser and nowadays realities, digital music in particular. Director Davide Manuli tried to explain some details of Hauser's biography and his personality if it would happened in our modern times. I'm highly enjoyed the multiple compares and allusions between acid DJ (played by woman, which I realised at once) and prophet/messiah/heir/epileptic etc. Also this funny experience decorated with awesome soundtrack and aesthetic black'n'white cinematography.
I wouldn't recommend it to usual pop-corn watcher, but for Alejandro Jodorowsky's fans or other curious indie cinema watchers it's highly recommended.
