Somewhat forgotten movie in Soderbergh's filmography, but I've always enjoyed it. Weird mixture of elements of Kafka's real-life biography with themes from his stories (though it isn't based on any of his writing directly). Quality here is not superb, but it's been out of print for ages in North America and is extremely hard to find.
I really liked this in high school.
Every time I see that name, for a half second I think it's Steve Oedekerk and I get terribly confused.
Oh hell yes. I saw this movie in some arthouse theater when I was 12 because my mom worked in the neighborhood. I thought it was some movie from the 40's until the color sequence at the end. When I left the theater, I immediately walked to a bookstore and bought The Metamorphosis. Franz Kafka rocks!
I don't know when or how I saw this but I remember it only in vivid parts. Somehow, I did not remember how gorgeous Theresa Russell was or that this was (I think) the last movie for Alec Guinness.

The only thing I remember is the face in the window because a fat guy next to me screamed when he saw it.
My old vhs version of this got lots of play. Great style and great music, even if the plot is a little bit thin.
I came so close to stealing a cassette of this back in high school because it was impossible to find anywhere else and for some reason this one Blockbuster in Bumblefuck, AL had a copy.
