Synopsis:
In 1828, as if out of nowhere, a young man appeared in Nuremberg's town square. He had no history, spoke only a few words, and could not stand upright. Having been locked in a basement for 17 years, Kaspar Hauser was more beast than man. Who was he, and where did he come from? Despite attempts by townsfolk to understand and civilize him, Kaspar became little more than a sideshow attraction. And though the mystery of his origins remained unanswered, perhaps the biggest question of all was, why did someone want him dead?

A very moving and enigmatic film - The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser review by FM

Spoiler Alert
30/03/2021

This came highly recommended. The whole film is an enigma as well as the main character. There are some delightful caricatures but no real 'bad' characters. The story is poignant and generally unresolved
