Audience Reviews for Who Was Kafka?
To get to the basic essence of Franz Kafka, this fairly interesting documentary uses actors to portray Kafka's friends and loved ones who offer testimony on his life which has similarly been done better elsewhere on other subjects. While the movie shows his old haunts in Prague and later Berlin, it makes no mention of the tumultuous events happening around him like World War I and the dissolution of a once flourishing empire. Regardless, the portrait we get of Kafka here is one mostly of depression due to his perpetual ill health. Knowing that he will probably die quite young(which he does), he spends all of his free time writing to get everything down before he does leave this world. When it comes to the source of his literary inspiration, it is not from that same sense of mortality but from working in an insurance company which explains everything.
