Franz Kafka's Its a Wonderful Life

December 11, 2009

The December 17th selection in the Dali and Beyond Film Series is Peter Capaldi’s “Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life”

A great deranged Christmas short to usher in the holiday season. In the spirit of Frank Capra’s classic film, Franz Kafka stars Richard E. Grant in the title role of this award-winning black comedy concerning the famous author suffering writer’s block on Christmas Eve, stumbling over how to complete the first sentence of “Metamorphosis,” while being tormented by holiday revelers downstairs. (1999, 24 min.; Not Rated, probably PG).

The series is screening at the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida.

I haven’t seen the movie, but it sounds amusing.
