Synopsis

“The time has come for children to enjoy the fun of reading Franz Kafka,” promises the fictional pilot episode of a TV show. In a magical setting with vibrant colors, enriched by music and animations, the cast of this entertaining show narrates the story of Gregor Samsa’s metamorphosis, in an extraordinarily adapted version for children. But a break for the commercials: don’t be fooled, this is not a children’s film. And who is really a child, anyway? (C. M.)
