Franz Kafka meets Orson Welles in Welles’s own idiosyncratic and expressionistic take on Kafka’s classic novel. Anthony Perkins stars as Joseph K, an average Joe (K) who wakes up one morning to be accused of unspecified crime he may or may not have actually committed. Considered by Welles to be “the best movie I have ever made” The Trial was beautifully shot in the Gare d'Orsay, an abandoned Parisian railway station. Cast includes Jeanne Moreau, Romy Schneider, Elsa Martinelli, and Welles himself as The Advocate.
