The Trial


A film by Orson Welles
Starring Anthony Perkins, Jeanne Moreau, Romy Schneider

A gripping adaptation of Franz Kafka’s tale of Joseph K (Anthony Perkins in an outstanding performance), a man arrested for a crime that is never explained to him. Though his neighbors all scorn him, no one seems willing or able to help him, not even his mysterious defense attorney. Filmed in an abandoned train station in Paris, the strange setting perfectly captured the bizarre and nightmarish world of Kafka’s mythical totalitarian state.
