I was really lucky to find and see this movie.It has proved to me that as the art of cinema is followed by stars,awards,promotional work and glamourous appearances there are also "hidden diamonds"."Das scloss" until this time is my greatest example of this meaning.Besides M.Schell and the famous Kafka's "Castle" all the other members of this production are unknown and without any career highlights.(R.Noelte seems to me like..a ghost with one brilliant film and no other appearance,at all,in movie making.From the beginning of this film you feel that the atmosphere is covered with mystery.A kind of mystery absolutely different than the types you can find in classic mystery movies.An enigmatic atmosphere that becomes out from the magnificent music score,the great photography,especially at the snow scenes,the short phrases from Schell,the bureaucracy that paralyzes every desire that "k" has and every action he does in order to be a member of the castle.But most of all this film shows the unexplained suspicion that is created in a group of people who have their own rules and beliefs and they cannot accept in our society any other person.Also shows the man,the lonely person who is frustrated by other people,by fate,shows Kafka. There isn't any end,this story couldn't end.It's just a screaming at the snows,in the place that this story began.Amazing...
