User Reviews

recommended rather for Vitalic fans
21 July 2012 | by micadaSee all my reviews

I wouldn't recommend this black and white movie to anyone who doesn't like electro music. Moreover, well made energetic soundtrack from DJ Vitalic is in my opinion the strongest part of The Legend of Kaspar Hauser.

There isn't much of a plot to speak but it's not a disadvantage. The movie itself is surreal, often funny, sometimes tedious (as some sequences are a little bit too long).

I found Manuli's vision fresh but it certainly won't reach all of the viewers.

6-7 out of 10
