Kafka in Love

Iemīlējies Kafka

"I was preoccupied with your letters: in agony, in love, in worry, and in an entirely indefinite fear of the indefinite." - Franz Kafka

Franz and Milena – between them a distance, her husband and loads of letters – it is love that fills Kafka's life with light and hope and at the same time illuminates the fears and darkness in him. The animated short Kafka in Love is based on Kafka's Letters to Milena. It explores less known, but nonetheless extraordinary and puzzling aspects of Kafka's personality.
