A Country Doctor: Film by Koji Yamamura

Japanese animator Koji Yamamura made this 2007 animated version of Franz Kafka's A Country Doctor. The hallucinatory tale involves a doctor who is apparently deceived into traveling through a winter night to treat a seriously ill young man. Nightmare distortion and time warping comes into play as the film seems almost to place us inside the head of this befuddled doctor who may himself be the diseased party in all of this. Beautiful hand-drawn art and a deep, mysterious soundtrack make this a brilliant Kafka film.
