Plot Outline:

Based on the true story of Kaspar Hauser, a man who appeared in 1828 in Nuremberg - with scant ability to speak or walk - with a note attached claiming he had spent his life in a dungeon of a sort and was recently released for unknown reasons. A benefactor attempts to reintegrate him into society with startling results. -- Chris Kavan

A strange and slow-moving Herzog film that is almost ethereal in its examination of an odd young man. The uniqueness of its hero makes this far from a traditional detective story. I wish that Herzog had paced the film more succinctly, but the fully-realized character of Kaspar keeps the audience relatively engaged.

Kaspar is a man that for some time was prisioner, and is released to the world as almost an animal, not knowing eat, barely speak... or interact socially. Very similiar to Elephant man, this movie is a fantastic story about alieanation and anti-racism. Amazing performances.

The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser

I didn't like this movie at all. I know this was supposed to be based on a true story but the execution could've been so much more interesting because it relates to Psychology and Biology. If this had been a documentary, it could've been better because the audiences could have gotten experts' opinions on the matter. Instead, the audiences get an extremely slow and unfocused film about a man that was raised in a shack, almost uninfluenced by the rest of society. The tiresome factor matches watching paint dry. This film being released in the 70's isn't an excuse either because there were a lot of great films that came from that era. The running time is also a con because it's almost two hours long. It was agonizing watching this movie. Avoid it if you can.
