Herzog uses the true story of Hauser – a young adult who suddenly appeared, barely able to speak or stand, in 1820s Nuremberg, seemingly having been incarcerated until that time – as a way of exploring the aspirations, assumptions and shortcomings of ‘civilisation’. The inspired casting of Bruno S as the outsider protagonist reaps many rewards, while the imagery is as vividly memorable as a dream.
