Young Kasper Hauser arrives to an unknown island with a very limited population. His 'way to be' heavily impacts every character in the story differently.
22 July 2016 | by mfernandadromundoSee all my reviews

I totally loved this movie. It is surreal, entertaining and leaves the viewer with a couple things to think about. It is a great reflection of our era. La Leggenda di Kasper Hauser will allow you to find its meaning for yourself. Silvia Calderoni's acting is completely out of this world; it was even scary at some points. She was able to create a character which will completely blow your mind. I assure you that you will be left wishing for Kasper Hauser to be real (Or is he already?) This movie has probably replaced The Tree of Life as my all-time favourite movie. The music in is this film is also great! For every music-enthusiast out there: You will feel very empathetic with the so-called Kasper Hauser. Please watch this movie with something in mind: it is nothing like you have watched before.
