Synopsis:
Anthony Perkins plays Joseph K, the man who finds himself interrogated without any hint of his alleged crime, and who turns to a mysterious and self-important defence attorney (Orson Welles) for help. In his efforts to understand the nature of his crime he finds himself caught in a labyrinth of legal obfuscation and nonsensical double-talk and begins to believe he is in fact guilty.

No subtitles, misjudged ending. - The Trial review by GF

Spoiler Alert
28/05/2021

Useless to me because it did not have the subtitles in English that it was said to have.

According to Norman Nicholson's book 'Man and Literature' 'The Trial' and 'The Castle' are both deeply religious books by Kafka; 'The Trial' dealing with Divine Justice and 'The Castle' with Divine Grace. This was also the view of Kafka's translator, Edwin Muir. 'The Trial' as a book ended with Joseph K, the protagonist, being executed by officials of the court. He seems to accept his punishment as just, although he does not know what he has been guilty of. Divine Justice is not to be judged by human standards and is inscrutable to mere humans. It must be accepted without question.. Orson Welles has changed the ending and has given K a moment of rebellion when he turns against his executioners and drives them away. This seems an unjustifiable change, and it damages the story.
